The EN Eurocodes
The EN Eurocodes are a series of 10 European Standards, EN 1990 - EN 1999, providing a common approach for the design of buildings and other civil engineering works and construction products. They are the recommended means of giving a presumption of conformity with the essential requirements of the Construction Products Directive for construction works and products that bear the CE Marking, as well as the preferred reference for technical specifications in public contracts.

JRC Report: Eurocode 8: Seismic Design of Buildings - Worked examples|
This JRC Report document presents in detail the seismic design of a reinforced concrete and steel building following the Eurocodes. It summarizes important points of the Eurocode 8 for the seismic design of concrete and steel buildings including foundations, utilizing a common generic building as a basis. The building worked example was presented at the workshop "Eurocode 8: Seismic Design of Buildings", held on 10-11 February 2011 in Lisbon, Portugal. The workshop was organized by JRC with the support of DG ENTR and in collaboration with CEN/TC250/Sub-Committee 8 and the National Laboratory for Civil Engineering (LNEC, Lisbon).Download the whole report (8.1MB)

|Message from CEN/TC250 chairman|
J-A Calgaro, chairman of CEN/TC250, outlines the medium-term strategy to uphold the Eurocodes as the most advanced codes for the design of civil engineering works.
83% of Eurocodes are published as National Standards. More than 1/3 of National Annexes are available. Read more on the progress of implementation.
