Future developments

As noted in the sub-sections in this chapter, the execution standards are subject to systematic review every five years (as are all European standards). Any confusion caused by conflicts between the execution standards and the provisions of Eurocode 7 and its associated geotechnical testing standards (discussed in Chapter 4) may therefore be remedied within a relatively short time scale, leading to a more coherent and consistent suite of geotechnical standards.

In the UK, de facto standards that already cover the execution of geotechnical works (e.g. SPERW22 and various CIRIA guides23) either already have been or are planned to be updated to complement Eurocode 7 and the execution standards.
