Abstract:
Since some national standards on bridge bearings have been issued and a certain level of knowledge seems to have consolidated, the time has come to prepare an ISO Standard. The most important elements that should be part of such an ISO Standard are listed. Contradictions between existing national standards should be clarified and eliminated. Outlived technology should not be part of an international standard while national standards still may specify such bearings for local reasons.
