For the serviceability limit states (irreversible), which are less dangerous and do not concern the safety of people, the failure probability values for structural elements of Class RC2 are roughly 10-1 (1/10) in 50 years and 10-3 (1/1000) in 1 year; this can be deduced from the relation between p and Pf (Table 2.3) for the values of p given in the last row of Table 2.5.
