This European Standard specifies the relevant characteristics of geosynthetic barriers (polymeric, clay and bituminous geosynthetic barriers), used as fluid barriers in infrastructure works, e.g. roads, railroads, runways of airports, and the appropriate test methods to determine these characteristics. Tunnels and underground structures are addressed in EN 13491.
The intended use of these products is to control the pathway of liquids through the construction and to limit any contamination, e.g. by de-icing products, of groundwater or water sources.
This European Standard is applicable to geosynthetic barriers, but not to geotextiles or geotextile-related products, as defined in EN ISO 10318.
This European Standard provides for the evaluation of conformity of the product to this European Standard.
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 will be in contact with water that has been treated for human consumption. In these cases other relevant standards, requirements and/or regulations should be observed.
