National foreword

This publication comprises the English language version of ENV 1992-1-1:1991 Eurocode 2: Design of concrete structures — Part 1: General rules and rules for buildings, as published by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), plus the National Application Document to be used with the ENV in the design of buildings to be constructed in the United Kingdom. ENV 1992-1-1:1991 results from a programme of work sponsored by the European Commission to make available a common set of rules for the design of building and civil engineering works.

An ENV is made available for provisional application, but does not have the status of a European Standard. The aim is to use the experience gained to modify the ENV so that it can be adopted as a European Standard.

The values for certain parameters in the ENV Eurocodes may be set by CEN members so as to meet the requirements of national regulations. These parameters are designated by |_| in the ENV.

During the ENV period of validity, reference should be made to the supporting documents listed in the National Application Document (NAD). The purpose of the NAD is to provide essential information, particularly in relation to safety, to enable the ENV to be used for buildings constructed in the UK, and the NAD takes precedence over corresponding provisions in the ENV. The Building Regulations 1991, Approved Document A 1992 (published December 1991) identifies ENV 1992-1-1:1991 as appropriate guidance, when used in conjunction with this NAD, for the design of concrete buildings.

Compliance with ENV 1992-1-1:1991 and the NAD does not in itself confer immunity from legal obligations.

Users of this document are invited to comment on its technical content, ease of use and any ambiguities or anomalies. These comments will be taken into account when preparing the UK national response to CEN on the question of whether the ENV can be converted to an EN.

Comments should be sent in writing to BSI, 2 Park Street, London W1A 2BS, quoting the document reference, the relevant clause and, where possible, a proposed revision, within 2 years of the issue of this document.
