AFCOS is a pioneering initiative

Responding to the EU Standardization Strategy of 2022, the broader EU Green Deal, and the twin transition, the AFCOS project is at the forefront of this innovation. Our mission is to develop recommendations for more agile standardization processes for construction materials. 

This initiative is rooted in pre-normative research conducted collaboratively across various sectors, involving research, standardisation, and industrial actors a wide aray of European countries.





We Believe In

Proper Education and Quality Knowledge

AFCOS is committed to producing roadmaps for pre-standardisation, educational and training course strategies, and developing skills in the field of standardisation of new building materials. 

These efforts aim to significantly benefit European Standardisation Organizations (ESOs), national standardisation bodies, educational institutions, and the industry at large.
