About the event

This presentation will explain to managers, designers/safety engineers and specifiers the changes required by a new EN12767 (Passive Safety of Support Structures for Road Equipment. Requirements and Test Methods) Standard which was published in 2019.

This standard changes the way in which existing and new passive products are classified, affecting how they will need to be specified. It will look at individual classifications, how they did look and how they look now after publication of the new norm. Included in the new standard is the way in which the structures are planted/installed, performance over the lifetime of the structure and changes to standards around roof deformation.
