Background to the Eurocode programme

(4) The Commission of the European Communities (CEC) initiated the work of establishing a set of harmonized technical rules for the design of building works and civil engineering works which would initially serve as an alternative to the different rules in force in the various Member States and would ultimately replace them. These technical rules became known as the 'Structural Eurocodes'.

(5) In 1990, after consulting their respective Member States, the CEC transferred the work of further development, issue and updating of the Structural Eurocodes to CEN, and the EFTA Secretariat agreed to support the CEN work.

(6) CEN Technical Committee CEN/TC 250 is responsible for all Structural Eurocodes.
