This European Standard specifies both quality and Factory Production Control requirements for use
during the manufacture of bituminous mixtures intended for use on roads, airfields and other trafficked
Additional testing carried out within contracts is beyond the scope of this European Standard.
The Factory Production Control will be applied to European Standards for bituminous mixtures if CEmarking
under CPR is applied. It may also be part of quality control in situations where CE-marking
does not apply. As such, manufacturers factories’ notified to issue CE Marking for production of
bituminous mixtures should not require duplicate or additional auditing for those situations where CEmarking
does not apply.
This European Standard is applicable to the control of bituminous mixture where the constituents and
target composition are known, and have been shown by means of Type Testing to comply with all
appropriate specified compositional, performance related or performance based requirements in
EN 13108-1 to −7 and EN 13108−9.
