31-01-2017 A public call for a Technical Reviewer to support delivery of Mandate M/515 phase 1 tasks for the development of the 2nd generation of Structural Eurocodes (EN 1990 – EN 1999) is open for submissions. The call covers a request for tenders for Technical Reviewer in support of the key objective of enhancing the ease of use of the Eurocodes.
Phase 1 of the work programme commenced in 2015 and is part of a six year phased programme of work, supported by the European Commission, for the development of the 2nd generation of European standards for structural and geotechnical design.
The new Standards are expected to be published in the early 2020s and will embrace new technologies and market needs, extending the scope of the existing Structural Eurocodes. Working under the direction of the CEN Technical Committee responsible for these Standards, called CEN/TC 250 ‘Structural Eurocodes’, funded Project Teams will undertake the core drafting work. The tender process is being coordinated by NEN, the Netherlands Standardization Institute, working in conjunction with CEN, the European Committee for Standardization and BSI, the British Standards Institution, which holds the secretariat for CEN/TC 250.
The online submission web form link and further details can be found on the NEN (www.nen.nl/eurocodes2020) and CEN websites. The deadline for submission of proposals to participate in the work is 7 March 2017, 5.00pm Central European Time (GMT+1).
