Abstract: Two French standards related to Ultra-high Performance Fiber-Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC) have been published in April 2016. The first one is dedicated to UHPFRC specification, performance, production and conformity, it is self-supporting and substitutes to the French standard for concrete, with a similar outline deriving from the European standard. Appendices detail test protocol adaptations as well as standardized methods associated to the determination of relevant material characteristics. The second standard stands as a national complement to Eurocode 2 for the design of UHPFRC structures (buildings, bridges and other civil structures). These documents are technically based on the French AFGC recommendations (revised edition 2013) and technical feedback of more than 15 years of UHPFRC projects and realizations. Significant additional precisions have been formally provided for clarification and easier implementation in a contract frame. Complying with these documents shall help achieving the quality of UHPFRC realizations and promote their widened acceptability.
