Note: Introduction Eurocode: 1 July 2012

The body in charge of national technical approvals in Germany established the Eurocodes (EC 3/4/9) for structural design on 1 July 2012. The Eurocodes reference EN 1090 for component design. Given this, manufacturers in Germany who wish to ensure compliance with the legal requirements should now consider having their companies certified according to EN 1090-1.
