Préambule me semble étrange : s'agirait tout simplement de descriptions ?

"The General Preambles for Trades 2017 published by the Association of South African Quantity Surveyors is designed to support and extend the abbreviated descriptions utilised in this Bill of Quantities by inter alia referring to SANS construction standards. Where such model preambles are not applicable (eg where BS or Euro construction standards are applicable or the design consultants provide other preambles/specifications for insertion), users are to ensure that the abbreviated descriptions when read in conjunction with the Standard System of Measuring Building Work (seventh edition) for works within South Africa or the Standard Method of Measuring Building Work for Africa 2015 (first edition) for works elsewhere in Africa, represent the full description by extending the abbreviated Bill of Quantities descriptions and/or by inserting appropriate preambles or specifications."

neutral  Germaine: Le contenu du document n'a pas le sens qu'on donne généralement à "préambule": il ne s'agit ni d'attendus, ni d'une introduction. À la rigueur, on pourrait parler de "préalables", mais bon... j'éviterais! Cf. discussion.

  -> The point of the "Preambles" "to support and extend the abbreviated descriptions" shows that the word is used in the usual (French too) sense of something that precedes the main text to give the reader information that will help them understand the latter
