Technical Education

ICF Events

ICF holds regular seminars for members on developments in standards. In 2016 we held a major seminar on changes to Irish guidance on standards for aggregates, updates on the changes to the National Annex of I.S. EN 206 and S.100 – the farm concrete standard. Speakers from the industry, the Department of the Environment, the Department of Agriculture and HomeBond all participated at the event.  ICF members are regularly updated on developments in standards and certification requirements at regional membership meetings throughout the year.

ICF Publications

ICF has published a number of technical guidance documents on recent changes to standards and specifications for aggregates, farm concrete and other standards and/or Codes of Practice relevant to our industry’s products. All of these guidance documents are available on this website.
