Cement is one of the most widely used materials in the construction industry, and it is important to ensure its quality and performance. That is why there is a European Standard for common cements, known as EN 197-1:2011, which defines and gives the specifications of 27 distinct common cements, 7 sulfate resisting common cements, and 5 low early strength blast furnace cements and their constituents[^1^].
This article will provide a brief overview of the main features and benefits of EN 197-1:2011, and how to access a free pdf download of the standard.
What is EN 197-1:2011?

It also includes mechanical, physical, and chemical requirements for the cements, as well as durability requirements. Furthermore, it states the conformity criteria and the related rules for assessing and verifying constancy of performance[^1^].
EN 197-1:2011 supersedes EN 197-1:2000 and EN 197-4:2004, which are withdrawn[^2^].
