The paper deals with the design rules of Eurocode 3 part 1-11 for tension components at serviceability limit states. The paper covers rules for tension rods and tension rod systems as well as rules for wire ropes, bundles of parallel wires or strands. These rules are introduced and explained. If helpful and possible, a comparison with the rules of DIN 18800-1 is made. © Ernst & Sohn Verlag für Architektur und technische Wissenschaften GmbH & Co. KG, Berlin.

Official national implementation, modification of approvals of Eurocodes, and a suite of standards coordinated at the European level that reflect the state of the art whilst providing comprehensive guidance on the main construction methods and design loads, is discussed. The DIN is preparing a National Annex to each of the parts of Eurocodes that contains the parameters to be determined at the national level. Due to the Eurocodes' significance across Europe and the design options provided, the relevant ARGEBAU bodies intend to release the Eurocodes to structural designers and engineers in Germany. After consultations of the ARGEBAU bodies regarding the final versions of the standards and their decision to officially introduce them, the Eurocodes will be announced in a draft list of technical building regulations. the equivalence of European and national standards may be stated pursuant to section 3 (3), sentence 3 MBO.

Exposure to flames of a fully developed room fire venting out of an external wall opening after flash-over is most commonly used as the reference fire scenario for assessing the fire performance of external wall cladding systems. This is reflected by various testing standards (e.g. ISO 13785-2 [1], E DIN 4102-20 [2]). The impact of other fire scenarios had been judged as less critical or most similar in the past. Hence, there was a widespread opinion that other scenarios were covered by these fire tests (cf. [3]). This assumption has also underlain assessment of ETICS fire performance. © 2016 Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences.

Major effort is being made within the European Economic Area to develop uniform European standards. The most commonly applied European design standards are the ten Eurocodes EN 1990 to EN 1999 with their 58 parts. These include a large number of parameters that can be determined at the national level, which may be specified in accordance with existing national requirements. To date, 34 of the 58 parts of the Eurocodes have been officially introduced with their associated National Annexes. The introduction of some parts, for instance in masonry construction, was still subject to completion of the National Annexes. The applicability of harmonized European product standards results from European law. The current legal basis is the Construction Products Directive, which was transposed into German law by the Bauproduktengesetz Germany does not prefer the procedure pursuant to Article 5 of the Construction Products Directive because this approach may result in the complete withdrawal of the standard objected to, which might be equal to a complete exclusion of the product from being marketed.
