Product | Fixings Eurocode 'should be welcomed'


Approximately 95% of UK consultants and contractors work is undertaken in the UK, or internationally outside the EU. The EU standards - BSEN752 for example are a complete waste of paper. The national annex is 10 times larger than the bland meaningless "agreed section". If the UK forces UK projects to be designed and constructed to EU standards, we will be burdening our clients with high costs and poor quality. We must go back to the sensible clear British Standards. Sure there will be a small vocal minority of foreign owned companies who complain, but they should not be allowed to hurt the overwhelming majority of clients who would considerably gain by using standards which are appropriate for the UK.
