Adding Countries to Eurocode
Countries that have adopted the Eurocodes – still wanted and in some cases needed – to modify the standards slightly to suite their own geography, weather, or common construction techniques. Eurocode standards set out numerous Nationally Determined Parameters (NDPs), which are typically defined in a National Annex (NA). National annexes are generally provided by each country’s national standards body. In Prokon, it is possible to add a country’s national annex to the Eurocode and set it as the active annex.
