Civil Engineering: Searching for Eurocodes

This guide provides an overview of key resources in Civil Engineering


The Eurocodes is a common set of technical rules for the design of building and civil engineering works produced for European Union (EU) member states. Every member states will adopt and translate the base Eurocodes unchanged into their national language and published as, e.g., for UK it would be BS EN 199X-Y-Y. Local differences within each member states will be taken care of through their respective National Annexe (NA), i.e. UK NA to BS EN 199X.

Searching for Eurocodes adopted by Singapore

Eurocodes adopted and implemented by Spring Singapore (our national standards body) are also available in print format in our library collection. They are published with the prefix “SS”, e.g. Eurocode 4 is published as “SS EN 1994”. Both adopted Eurocodes and related Singapore NAs can be found in our collections by searching at our Library Catalogue by keying in "singapore eurocodes".
