International Standards for CPT

As an user of CPT penetrometer equipment you’ll have to comply with the official standards for the relevant soil investigation testing procedures.

In order to be of service, we have listed some national and international standards for CPT testing procedures. The list underneath is quite extensive, but by no means complete. We advise you strongly to deliberate at all times with your client and your geotechnical advisors on which geotechnical standard to use for each individual project.
