The implementation of Eurocodes will bring significant changes to how structures are designed and specified. This in turn raises the need for changes in processes for the procurement, technical control and management of the design and construction of structures. ADEPT members, as structures owners, will be assessing the changes required to their policies and procedures due to the implementation. A central ADEPT guidance document will support a common understanding among ADEPT members and a consistent approach to the implementation of Eurocodes and management of their impacts on the procurement, design and construction of structures. The main purpose of this guidance document is to provide ADEPT members with clear and authoritative guidance and recommendations on addressing the issues arising from the implementation of Eurocodes. The document includes an overview of the Eurocodes, their legal status and implementation requirements, identifies the necessary changes in established processes and procedures, and highlights specific challenges for local authorities, and how these can be tackled effectively. The document also aims to assess and analyse the different needs of various groups of staff for Eurocode training, and offers guidance on the development of training programmes for both technical and non-technical staff, to enable them to reach a level of awareness, knowledge and understanding appropriate to their role, in a timely and cost-effective way. The guidance offered is not prescriptive, but rather enables ADEPT members to adapt the implementation approach to meet their own particular needs and circumstances. The guidance will provide a framework for specific policies on Eurocode implementation to be drafted by individual ADEPT members. It should be noted that the main focus of this document is on policies and principles, not technical details – although the training programmes outlined will enable those who need to have detailed technical knowledge to identify the most appropriate sources of information and guidance. The information provided may form the basis for future regional workshops to disseminate knowledge and experience, and should enable readers to hold informed conversations regarding the implementation and use of Eurocodes. Specific guidance on key roles undertaken by ADEPT members, and the challenges presented by the change, are also considered, for example, in relation to the Technical Approval process.
