The committees of the Road and Transportation Research Association (FGSV) are responsible for drafting and up-dating technical standards and specifications in the fields of road construction, traffic engineering, and traffic planning. When doing so, the latest findings from the fields of research and best practice are taken into account.

Working in conjunction with the German Institute for Standardization (DIN), some of these committees act as mirror committees to the corresponding committees within the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), thereby contributing to the development of European standards.

These technical standards and specifications are published by the FGSV and are produced and sold by the FGSV's publishing arm, FGSV Verlag.

A list of all technical standards and specifications can be found in the FGSV Verlag catalogue. These publications can be ordered directly by e-mail.

Technical standards and specifications can be obtained from FGSV Verlag.
