EU Standards for OSB

OSB Single Storey ConstructionThe main OSB standard is: EN 300: Oriented Strand Boards (OSB) – Definitions, classification and specifications. However, all OSB products used in European construction must comply with the overall standard for wood-based panels, EN 13986: 2004+A1 2015, now updated (key amendments).

OSB panel performance characteristics:
Guide to EN 13986 tables listing performance characteristics for load-bearing (structural) and non-structural applications for the dry, humid and exterior environments.
Performance characteristics for different applications – and the individual standards.
Use Classes and Service Classes:
Additional moisture content guidance and aligning Use and Service Classes.
The term ‘Hazard Class’ has been replaced by ‘Use Class’ in the updated EN 335:2013 and these are relevant to all types of panels, not OSB specifically.
Seven other relevant standards for using OSB in Europe:
EN 319: Particleboards and fibreboards – Determination of tensile strength perpendicular to the plane of the board

EN 717-1 , (EN 717-2) and now EN ISO 12460-5: Wood-based Panels – Determination of Formaldehyde Release

EN 789: Timber structures – Test methods – Determination of mechanical properties of wood-based panels

EN 1058: Wood-based panels – Determination of characteristic 5 percentile values and characteristic mean values

EN 12369-1: Wood-based Panels – Characteristic Value for Structural Design – OSB, particleboard and fibreboards

EN 12871: Wood-based panels – Performance specifications and requirements for load bearing boards for use in floors, walls and roofs
