AD.2007-05.1.4 Eurocode 8

Eurocode 8: Part 1 [EN 1998-1-1:2004] contains specific requirements and recommendations for building structures that are to be constructed in seismic regions. Essentially, these fundamental requirements have been provided to ensure that the structures can sustain the seismic loads without collapse and also – where required – avoid suffering unacceptable damage and can continue to function after an exposure to a seismic event.

As with all Eurocodes, a National Annex Document should accompany the use of Eurocode 8 in each of the European nations.
