Abstract [en]

The need for "Sustainable Construction" necessarily imposes inherent requirements for specified levels of durability of building materials and components and it is understood that these can only be entrenched within the construction sector through standardization. however, a systematic and scientific approach to the development of these standards is fundamentally required. Hence, development work on methods for service life prediction is vital to achieving the necessary basis for the advancement of useful standards. Given the level of interest both nationally and internationally regarding achieving durability in products, standardization activities related to "service life and durability" are thus an on-going concern. Work generated within the CIB W80 / RILEM 175-SLM technical committee "Service life methodologies" provides a basis for developing the necessary information from which standards can thereafter be drafted. This brief report provides an overview of recent activities of the CIB W80 / RILEM 175-SLM TC, its on-going work program and proposed programs of activities for 2003-2005. As well, insights are provided into the collaborative efforts and related activities within ISO TC 59 SC14 - "Design life" and the Performance based building (PeBBu) thematic network initiative focused on "Construction materials" of the fifth EU framework on Competitive and Sustainable Growth.
