BELGIAN ROAD RESEARCH CENTRE (BRRC)
The Belgian Road Research Centre (BRRC) is a public utility research institute created in 1952 by application of a decree-law of 1947 aimed at promoting research in industry. Its main goal is to help private companies and public authorities find solutions for the design, construction and maintenance of an efficient high-quality road infrastructure under optimum economic conditions, as well as to the problems of safety, mobility and environment raised by modern road transport.
To achieve these objectives in the most effective way, BRRC develops the following main activities:
– carrying out applied research;
– disseminating all useful information, in particular our own research results but also results obtained by others, to the road construction branch;
– offering technical, organizational and documentary assistance, and developing software;
– carrying out specific studies, tests, check-tests and expert studies;
– assisting in drawing up national and international regulations, specifications and standards, and participating in certification (in particular of quality management systems);
– helping to start up quality management systems in road construction.
