Abstract: This report is the result of the work of the former FIP Commission 10: Management and strengthening of concrete structures, which replaced to the former FIP Commission 10: Maintenance, operation and use in 1995. The former CEB Commission V: Operation and Use and in particular its Task Group 5.4: Assessment, maintenance and repair also played a role in this report. When in 1998 the FIP merged with the CEB to form the fib, the well advanced writing was completed by a small editorial group.

The purpose of the report is twofold: to give an overview of the issues relating to the management of concrete structures in general and to add details about assessment and remedial action, as these are important technical aspects of management and maintenance systems.

The more general aspects of asset management are dealt with in Chapter 1, aimed at owners and decision-makers. Chapters 2 and 3, aimed at consultants and contractors, deal with decision-making in the assessment process. A review of remediation techniques is given in Chapter 3, intended to help in the selection of remedial actions rather than in their execution. The report also includes some significant appendices regarding load testing, monitoring and fire, and also special considerations related to seismic retrofitting. Appendix 1 offers keywords that the various actors in this field could use for a common language.
