Phase 1 of the Evolution of Structural Eurocodes started in 2015. This call for experts is closed. The association information and documents are online available for reference purposes.
The Eurocodes enable the design of building and civil engineering works, and comprises of 10 European Standards in 58 parts. The first generation of EN Eurocodes were the most comprehensive and technically advanced suite of standards for structural and geotechnical design in the world. Their development was a tremendous achievement and represented the culmination of over 30 years collaborative effort. Their impact has been considerable. It has been estimated that they affect the work of around half a million professional engineers across Europe.
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 European Commission (EC), Enterprise and Industry Directorate-General has recently granted funding for phase 1 of a detailed standardisation CEN/TC 250 work programme, that will develop the second generation of EN Eurocodes.
