British Standards are changing to a harmonised system of uniform requirements throughout Europe. The documents in this section will provide informative background to the development and application of these standards.
The CPR came into force on 24 April 2011; however, some sections of the regulation have been deferred to commence in 2013. The main purpose of the regulation is to simplify and clarify the framework created by the original directive. It is hoped that while being more transparent, the new regulation will be more effective in ensuring harmonised conformity within the European Union in the regulation of construction products.
Case histories of previous contracts and corrosion prevention systems installed by CPA Members.
This is a series of notes prepared by the Joint Liaison Committee of The Concrete Society, Institute of Corrosion and Corrosion Prevention Association. They address the requirements for BS EN 1504, Products and systems for the protection and repair of concrete structures These articles have been published in CONCRETE and will in due course, be compiled into a Concrete Society Technical Report.
Formerly known as "Monographs" these technical notes provide advice and guidance on many of the issues which require addressing when considering corrosion protection systems.

CONTINUITY AND SHORTS IN ELECTROCHEMICAL TREATMENTS
Electrochemical treatments are extensively used to treat corrosion-damaged concrete. These include impressed current and galvanic cathodic protection, chloride extraction, re-alkalisation, and hybrid treatments using a temporary power supply. To read more and download the Technical Note Click here
IMPRESSED CURRENT ANODES FOR THE CATHODIC PROTECTION OF ATMOSPHERICALLY EXPOSED REINFORCED CONCRETE
Impressed current cathodic protection is widely used to provide corrosion control on reinforced concrete structures suffering from reinforcement corrosion. It is also applied to early 20th century steel framed masonry and brick clad buildings and monuments.. To download the Technical note Click here
A key objective of the Corrosion Prevention Association is to identify, quantify and communicate the principles and benefits of corrosion prevention to those having an influence or an interest in the design, construction, use, maintenance, preservation and investment in reinforced concrete buildings and structures.
