Or to your national standards organization National Application Documents NADs

13) In view of the responsibilities of authorities in member countries for safety, health and other matters covered by the essential requirements of the Construction Products Directive (CPD), certain safety elements in this ENV have been assigned indicative values which are identified by ("boxed values"). The authorities in each member country are expected to review the "boxed values" and may substitute alternative definitive values for these safety elements for use in national application.

14) Some of the supporting European or International standards may not be available by the time this Prestandard is issued. It is therefore anticipated that a National Application Document (NAD) giving an substitute definitive values for safety elements, referencing compatible supporting standards and providing guidance on the national application of this Prestandard, will be issued by each member country or its Standards Organization.

15) It is intended that this Prestandard is used in conjunction with the NAD valid in the country where the building or civil engineering works is located.

16) The scope of ENV 1991 is defined in clause 1.1.1 and the scope of this part of ENV 1991 is defined in 1.1.2. Additional parts of ENV 1991 which are planned are indicated in 1.1.3.

17) This Part is complemented by a number of informative annexes.
