Eurocodes – What are Eurocodes?

Eurocodes are the European Standards for the design of buildings. They cover the most common materials and structures, including bridges.

Denmark takes an active part in the development of the Eurocodes. The work is conducted in the European Committee for Standardisation, CEN, of which Danish Standards is a member.

Since 2009, Eurocodes have been the basis of design in Denmark. Building authorities, construction product manufacturers and builders must therefore use this common basis. The Eurocodes are applied to strengthen the internal market within the field of construction.

Danish Standards has developed Danish 'easy-to-use' versions of the Eurocodes which include those parts of the system which make it possible to design most structures for daily uses.
