Structural Design Codes

BSI International Survey

PREFACE
This is the first Edition of Building and Structural De#ign Codes - An International Survey. It
has been prepared with the help of Standards Bodies, Building Associations, and Government
Ministries around the world.
Building and Design has, traditionally, been a locally controlled and influenced matter. Local
resources and conditions, and the limits these imposkl, have been the primary influence on
structural design codes.

The opening of International markets and the strides bade in innovative designs, have made
Governments increasingly aware of the need to both hake regulations easily available and to
consider relaxing them in order to ease International *ade. It is an area of change as new less
prescriptive codes come in to existence and agreemends between nations are forged.
The publication will be updated quarterly to keep ab east of these changes. Countries not so
far included will be added, as the information be omes available. Developments within
Europe will also be monitored and the information k@t up to date.

The Updates are free for the first year after purchase,of the book. Subsequently they will be
made available to subscribers for an additional fee.
Included for further information is a list of International Standards bodies, and where
available Construction Product Approval bodies.
Any comments and suggestions regarding the survey are always welcome and should be
addressed to

Structural Design Codes

BSI International Survey

INTRODUCTION
Purpose
This publication aims to provide easy
reference to
International Building
regulations for Structural Designers and
Architects. It is a direct result of enquiries
received from industry regarding the
regulations, legislation, and design
requirements to be met overseas.

Scope

This survey covers National Building


Regulations and design Standards. The
Regulatory body is cited and where
applicable any acceptable Foreign
Standards are also included. It is divided
in to the European Economic Area and the
Rest of the World so that any mutual
agreements may be highlighted.

Sources of Information
Most countries
have
been sent
questionnaires to
their
respective
government
departments
and
the
information received from them has been
used in compiling this document, their
assistance is much appreciated. The
National Standards Bodies have been
instrumental in providing information or
alternatively providing the relevant
approval authority and their help is also
acknowledged.

In the case of those countries were we


have not been able to obtain information,
we have either provided the reason for this
in the notes section, or have not included
them in this edition. Future editions will
have additional countries included as the
information is gathered.

Acceptance of Foreign
Codes and Standards

Design

Many Building Codes include mandatory


Structural Design Standards. Although

0 BSI 2001

there is a current trend towards relaxing


thig status, and many countries, including
the/ UK, are beginning to discuss the
be efits of Performance based Codes to
all w for more innovative designs, this is
still)the exception not the rule.

Availability of Documents
Unless otherwise stated, documents listed
are in the language of the country of
ori$in.
En lish translations of all major foreign
CO es are available through BSI Technical

Construction Products Directive

Eukocodes

Council Directive 89/106/EEC of 21


December 1988 on the approximation of
laws, regulations and administrative
provisions of the Member States relating
to construction products.

Th6 series of Eurocodes provide


deftnitions of building performance. They
coder all aspects of the Design of
st ctures and contain formulae and data
whch can be used to calculate the key
di ,ensions and other design variables for
a n i proposed construction.

Council Directive 93/68/EEC of 22 July


1993 amending Directive 89/1O6/EEC
(construction products)
The CPD is an attempt by Europe to
ensure the Safety of constructions in all
countries of the European Economic Area.
It lays down six essential performance
requirements:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

Mechanical resistance and stability


Safety in the case of fire
Hygiene, health and the environment
Safety in use
Protection against noise
Energy economy and heat retention

The Directive permits two methods of


compliance
a) Manufacture in compliance with
Harmonized European Standards
(relevant national standards or
Euronorms)
b) European Technical Approval.

Th Eurocodes are made available in


ea h member country of CEN, which
includes the EC and E R A member
CO ntries, by each countrys national
sta dards body in the appropriate
lan uage. Each member country has also
pro uced a National Application Document
(N D) in the codes most appropriate to
the giving definitive figures for nationally
reg lated safety values, a schedule of
sudporting national reference standards
and providing guidance on application.

At the time of going to press no


Harmonized standards have

European Technical Approval is performed

countries in the EEA e.g. the UK. However


in most countries it is required. Also as the
CPD allows individual Member States to
require different levels and classes of
performance for products, manufacturers
will also need to ensure that their product
meets the specific national regulatory
requirements of the country concerned.

Notes

Local authorities carry the main responsibility for land-use planning and b ilding supervision.
The Building Act defines the rules for planning and building. The regional and-use plans drawn up by the Regional Councils guide
the master plans and the detailed plans of local authorities.
Adequate documentatlon must be acquired beforehand on the quality and use of structures and building materials and the quality is
controlled by initial tests and productiontests when needed.

1.
2.
3.

Building regulations may also be found in other legal provisions of the local authority such as public health, fire safety bye-laws,
and police orders.
The level of structural safety presaibed conforms to European perfohnance levels.
Guidelines for concrete structures are based on the CEB Model Code and consequently comply with international levels as to
content and ratings.

Acceptable Foreign Standards


See Eurocodes
Swiss Building standards are not mandatory. Engineers can use any Desi n standards if agreed with the owner of the building. The
owner on the other hand has to make sure, that his work is safe to users tnd the public and has therefore an interest that standards
are used. This is normally documented In the contract agreements. If any gispute arises the law tends to accept standard as "state
of the art". So its good practice to use standards but it is not mandatory.

Regulatory Body
There is no single Regulatory Body in Swikerland.

Notes
The design and construction of every building shall meet the standards set out in !Parts 3 to 9 of the National Building Code.
Tile provinces have the authority to regulate building construction. However mos provinces use the National Building Code as a
base document in developing provincial building codes. In this way the Building cI
! des across Canada are kept relatively similar in
nature.

A number of organizations, such as CSA', CGA (Certified General Accountants ssociation of Canada) and ULC (Underwriters'
Laboratories of Canada), provide full third-party certification for safety-related pro ucts or systems The NBC does not require full
third-party certification, only that the product or system meets certain minimum re, uirements. Code enforcement officials often rely
on certificationas a guarantee that such is the case.
To provide tbe construction industry with a national evaluation service for innovative materials, products and systems, NRC created
the Canadian Construction Materials Centre.
This service includes the evaluation of new and innovative products for which no btandards exist, and of products where standards
exist but for which no third-party certification program has been established. Mosl provinces and territories use the Centre's
evaluatiorl reports iis a basis for accepting new products

Notes
'The InternationalBuilding Code 2000 is a new Code which is designed to replace the three existing codes,namely:
1.Natlonal Bulldlng Code
BOCA The Building Officials and Code Administrators International
2.The Uniform Bulldlng Code
ICBO The InternationalConferenceof Building Officials
3.Standard Building Codes
SBCCl The Southern Building Code Congress International
The process of adoption by each state is in progress.

The lnternabional Building Code is a stand-alone document which coordinateswi all the other 2000 InternationalCodes including:
InternationalPlumbing Code(tm) (IPC). the InternationalPrivate Sewage Disposal Code(tm) (IPSDC) the International Fire Code,
and the InternationalMechanicalCode(tm) (IMC)
to create a set of comprehensive performance-based guidelines for the design an4 installation of building systems.
Regulatory requirements for building are very localized in the US. Local reguiatiods are based on the Model Building Code (lac).
