Postponement of the CE marking of the concrete reinforcing steels

With its decision dated 05/12/2006, the European Commission decided to suppress the reference to EN 10080 for the CE marking of the concrete reinforcing steels (see OJEC 08/12/2006). This cancellation was made for two reasons : 1. The EN 10080 does not take into account the Rm characteristics, used in the Italian anti-seismic regulation, 2. The annex ZA of the EN 10080 foresees technical classes, but these classes are not described in the standard. Note : The EN standards reference for CE marking include a so-called « harmonised » part and a so-called « voluntary » part. The « harmonised » part is the part that is made regulatory in European countries by the implementation of the CE marking. The annex ZA addresses the parts of the standard that are « harmonised ». The voluntary part is the one that is not « harmonised ». The CE marking of the concrete reinforcing steels is then delayed until the EN 10080 is modified to take into account the objections of the Commission. This will probably require several years. In between, the EN 10080 standard is and remains a European standard that must be published by each of the standardisation bodies that are CEN members (AFNOR in France). It then remains an NF EN 10080 in France, DIN EN 10080 in Germany etc. and the contradictory national standards shall be deleted. That is why the French standardisation commission for reinforcing steels has begun the revision the standards of the A 35 series.
