This European Standard specifies the relevant characteristics of geosynthetic barriers, including polymeric geosynthetic barriers, clay geosynthetic barriers and bituminous geosynthetic barriers, to be used as fluid barriers for potable, fresh or saline water, in the construction of reservoirs and dams, and the appropriate test methods to determine these characteristics.
The intended use of these products is to control the leakage of water through the construction.
This European Standard is not applicable to geotextiles or geotextile-related products.
This European Standard provides for the evaluation of conformity of the product to this document.
This European Standard defines requirements to be met by manufacturers and their authorised representatives with regard to the presentation of product properties.
This European Standard does not cover applications where the geosynthetic barrier is to be in contact with water that has been treated for human consumption.
Where potable water is or may be in direct contact with the product the designer should also refer to other relevant standards, requirements and/or regulations.
