As of recently, the planned new guideline will include a significant expansion in terms of content. It will be renamed to become the "Guideline for the Maintenance of Concrete Members" (Concrete Maintenance Guidelaine) and will include stipulations on the fundamental maintenance procedure while considering the components upkeep, inspection, repair and improvement similarly to DIN 31051.
