Cc

Low consequence for loss of human life; economic, social or environmental consequences small or negligible

Agricultural buildings where people do not normally enter (e.g. storage buildings), greenhouses

Classes CC1 and CC2 correspond to importance classes I, II, whereas CC3 corresponds to classes III and IV, as from EN1998.1, Table 4.3.

From this table it is apparent that it is the importance of the structure concerned which is the criterion for classification.

Three reliability classes (RC1, RC2, RC3) may be associated with the three consequence classes CC1, CC2 and CC3, depending on the reliability index p defined above. Table 2.3 gives values of p for different values of Pf (remembering that the p index allows the estimation of Pf values only if the relationship between Ms and the random variables of the problem is linear and the variables have normal distribution).
