Chapter 1. The Structural Eurocodes

Chapter 1 introduces the various Structural Eurocodes, the links between them, and their timetable for publication. This chapter places the Eurocodes into the wider landscape of standards development not only by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), but also by the International Standards Organization (ISO) and various national standards bodies, such as the British Standards Institution (BSI) and its German counterpart, Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN).
