The Eurocodes are European standards specifying how structural design should be conducted within the European Union (EU). Their development started 1990 by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) upon the request of the European Commission. Eurocodes were taken officially in use 2006–2010 in each EU country. The second generation of the Eurocodes are currently under development by CEN/TC250 and planned to be in use 2026–2028. It is evident that Eurocodes have influenced huge number of engineers in EU countries, but as being a detailed and modern design standard, also influenced indirectly projects and developments elsewhere. The webinar is targeted to give insight how the second generation of the Eurocodes are developed, managed and reviewed.
