Over 200 RILEM Technical Recommendations have been produced by RILEM Technical Committees. Many of these recommendations have been adopted in research and practice, and are used by international standardisation bodies, as a basis for their work.
All RILEM recommendations reflect the state-of-the-art at the time of publishing. Note that these documents may be superseded later by more recent recommendations.

The subject matter of TC 189-NEC is:
a) Selection of suitable non-destructive test (NDT) methods for the evaluation of the thickness and quality of the concrete cover ('covercrete'), in view of the durability of concrete structures
b) Draft recommendations for the application of those test methods
c) Establish guidelines for the specification of the quality and thickness of the concrete cover, as function of exposure conditions and service life design, and for its compliance control in situ by NDT methods.
The present recommendation Comparative test - Part I: Comparative test of 'penetrability' methods has been discussed by one of the TC members, resulting in a five-page update, appended on 15 October 2007 to the electronic version of the original article.
