EuLA is and has always been very active in following and participating in the standardisation works concerning lime and its applications, with a special involvement in the Building Lime Standard EN 459.
In recent years, the implementation of the Construction Products Regulation No 305/2011 (replacing the Construction Products Directive 89/106/EEC) has required much attention, and more work can be expected in the future, especially if Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for construction products become mandatory.
Standards for construction products is an important part of the activity but EuLA Members also carefully following standards on road materials, earthworks, soil treatment, masonry and mortar and drinking water, with the continuous objective to defend a correct treatment of lime in these standards.
