This half day Technical Seminar aims to provide guidance on the recently published and extensively revised British Standards relating to the sampling and testing of core samples, and the assessment of in-situ concrete strength.


The event will offer an in-depth insight for engineers, supervisors, laboratory, technical managers and technicians on in-situ strength assessment with the focus upon practical interpretation of the newly revised BS EN 13791 and BS EN 12504-1. Following their publication BS 6089 has been withdrawn.


Registration for the Morning session is at 09:45 and expected to close at 13:00.
