British Concrete Standard (BS 8500)
Public comment via the BSI draft review system on the British Standard for Concrete closed promptly on 31 December 2014. The BSI drafting committee have set meetings on 5 and 10 February to consider these comments. The BRMCA Concrete Technical Panel met on 20 January 2015 where it looks like fears concerning Designated Cement-Bound concrete have been largely allayed.
