A Nordic certification system for road marking materials was introduced in 2015. In the first stage, the certification system applies to Denmark, Norway and Sweden. In these countries, a documented product approval will be required in order to use a road marking material on roads managed by the national road authorities. Product approval will be based on monitored and documented performance measurements of material samples applied on test fields on public roads.

Today, the certification system includes two test sites: one in Sweden and one in Denmark. However, the present report only deals with the certification in Denmark; the results from the Swedish test site will be presented in another report. The first round of material application took place in 2015, while follow-measurements were carried out around one year later, in 2016. At this point in time, the wheel passage classes P0, P1, P2 and P3 were reached at the Danish test site. In other words, the report presents which materials were certified for the mentioned P classes in 2016.
