Installation of post-tensioning systems

Given the complexity of the installation of post-tensionning, its importance for the safety and the durability of structures, it must be performed by fully qualified companies. As no European standard covers installation, ASQPE has developed its own rules in order to award a certificate of conformity based on the recommendations of the ETAG 013 and of the CWA 14646.

The ASQPE certification rules define among others:

  • The process and the management of the certification,
  • The constituent documents of the application dossier,
  • The prescriptions relative to quality management system, human and equipment resources, control and calibration equipment, procedures of post-tensionning installation,
  • The method of periodic supervision and of the renewal of the certificate.
