Introduction to Eurocodes

The Eurocodes are the ten European standards (EN; harmonised technical rules) specifying how structural design should be conducted within the European Union (EU). The standards cover structural design and action on structures, design of concrete, steel, composite, timber, and masonry structures, geotechnical design, design of structures for earthquake resistance, and design of aluminium structures.

Finding Eurocodes

Full text Eurocodes can be accessed online via BSOL (British Standards Online).

To find Eurocodes in BSOL either search for the relevant BS EN number if you know it, or use the keyword search box to find all Eurocode material by entering the term 'Eurocode'. To conduct a more precise search enter 'Eurocode' plus the number of the code you require.

Finding Construction Standards

Online access to around 1800 construction-related standards and additional documentation about Eurocodes from a variety of professional organisations can be found in the Construction Information Service. Many professional bodies such as the ICE, BSI (British Standards Institution), and the Institution of Structural Engineers have information about Eurocode implementation on their web sites.
