Application of Coding Systems Using the Example of EN 13508-2

The documentation of damages, defects, other peculiarities (findings) in sewers and pipes within the scope of CCTV inspection is not possible without a uniform nomenclature. In Europe, EN 13508 Part 2: "Coding system for visual inspection" provides the normative basis for documenting and describing various findings, which later serve the engineer as a basis for assessment.
This module provides the basic knowledge required for the structure and application of the coding system.

After completing this module, you will have a sound knowledge of:

  • coding system according to EN 13508-2;
  • differentiation between basic information and findings;
  • differences in the coding system between sewers and manholes;
  • codes for route finding, tightness indication, location on the circumference and
  • procedure of inspection in an object.
