The paper deals with the idea of self-healing and selfrepair of cement concrete. The mechanisms of these phenomena have been described together with the methods of their controlling, i.e. granting to the concrete the ability to self-repair. The particular attention has been paid to the use of dispersed carriers of the repair mean, including the possibility of application of epoxy resin without a hardener as the modifier for the cement composite. The present achievements have been pointed out as well as the problems to resolve, showing the necessary directions of the further researches in this area.
