Objectives of the Eurocodes

(1) The Structural Eurocodes comprise a group of standards for the structural and geotechnical design of buildings and civil engineering works.

(2) They cover execution and control only to the extent that is necessary to indicate the quality of the construction products, and the standard of the workmanship, needed to comply with the assumptions of the design rules.

(3) Until the necessary set of harmonised technical specifications for products and for methods of testing their performance is available, some of the Structural Eurocodes cover some of these aspects in informative Annexes.
