Abstract: Competition in the national market is a factor that requires specifications of high
technologic standards, as the need to meet the demands of the Consumer’s Protection
and Defense Code. Standardization brings benefits to both producers and consumers.
The standardization process for utilization of recycled aggregate in Brazil is becoming
reality by initiative of SindusConSP - Civil Construction Industry Syndicate on São
Paulo State and IBRACON - Brazilian Concrete Institute, through its Technical
Committee - CT 206 - Environment. Standardization of construction residues provides
more efficient means for the exchange of information between manufacturer and client,
increasing the reliability in commercial and service relations, reduces inadequate
procedures, bring economical benefits to producer and consumer and protection to
human health. The basic texts are being discussed in the CE - Studies Commission of
the ABNT - Brazilian Association for Technical Standards. This paper presents the
stage where the studies for obtaining in the near future the standardization of recycled
aggregates to be utilized in laying pavements, concrete without structural function and
concrete with structural function, are as of this moment. The standards that are being
elaborated by the CB-18 of ABNT refer to the Selection and Transfer Area, parameter
for recycled aggregate for pavement and concrete.
