Informal Review of 2nd generation Eurocodes – prEN 1990 and prEN 1997-1

Article by

Structural Eurocodes are being developed into second generation of the documents that are expected to be published soon after 2020. The first drafts of the new EN 1990 and EN 1997-1 are now available for review and informal comment. The window of opportunity to review and comment is very short.

An introduction to the changes in the codes and the requirements for comments will be presented in a webinar on 30th November at 14:00. Details can be found here. All geotechnical design engineers are urged to participate in this process to ensure the UK voice is heard and that practice is improved. AGS liaison should be directed via the Geotechnical Working Group.

Comments should be entered into the appropriate comments tables. Comments should be constructive and will only be accepted if a clear proposed revision is included. Completed comment sheets should be returned to AGS at ags@ags.org.uk by 12th January 2018.
