BSI International Survey Structural Design Codes
e
PREFACE

This is the first Edition of Building and Structural De#ign Codes - An International Survey. It
has been prepared with the help of Standards Bodies, Building Associations, and Government
Ministries around the world.

Building and Design has, traditionally, been a locally controlled and influenced matter. Local
resources and conditions, and the limits these imposkl, have been the primary influence on
structural design codes.

The opening of International markets and the strides bade in innovative designs, have made
Governments increasingly aware of the need to both hake regulations easily available and to
consider relaxing them in order to ease International *ade. It is an area of change as new less

e prescriptive codes come in to existence and agreemends between nations are forged.

The publication will be updated quarterly to keep ab east of these changes. Countries not so

far included will be added, as the information be omes available. Developments within
Europe will also be monitored and the information k@t up to date.

The Updates are free for the first year after purchase,of the book. Subsequently they will be
made available to subscribers for an additional fee.

Included for further information is a list of International Standards bodies, and where
available Construction Product Approval bodies.

Any comments and suggestions regarding the survey are always welcome and should be

Notes
v
Local authorities carry the main responsibility for land-use planning and b ilding supervision.
The Building Act defines the rules for planning and building. The regional and-use plans drawn up by the Regional Councils guide
the master plans and the detailed plans of local authorities.

Adequate documentatlon must be acquired beforehand on the quality and use of structures and building materials and the quality is
controlled by initial tests and productiontests when needed.

1. Building regulations may also be found in other legal provisions of the local authority such as public health, fire safety bye-laws,
and police orders.
2. The level of structural safety presaibed conforms to European perfohnance levels.
3. Guidelines for concrete structures are based on the CEB Model Code and consequently comply with international levels as to
content and ratings.

Acceptable Foreign Standards


See Eurocodes
Swiss Building standards are not mandatory. Engineers can use any Desi n standards if agreed with the owner of the building. The
owner on the other hand has to make sure, that his work is safe to users tnd the public and has therefore an interest that standards
are used. This is normally documented In the contract agreements. If any gispute arises the law tends to accept standard as "state
of the art". So its good practice to use standards but it is not mandatory.

Regulatory Body
There is no single Regulatory Body in Swikerland.

Building control in the UK is run by Local Authorities who enforce the regulations and give planning permission.

The current building regulations are mandatory however there are plans to relax dtructural design to allow for innovative design.
These plans are in the early discussion phase.

Notes
The design and construction of every building shall meet the standards set out in !Parts 3 to 9 of the National Building Code.
Tile provinces have the authority to regulate building construction. However mos provinces use the National Building Code as a
base document in developing provincial building codes. In this way the Building cI
! des across Canada are kept relatively similar in
nature.

1
A number of organizations, such as CSA', CGA (Certified General Accountants ssociation of Canada) and ULC (Underwriters'
Laboratories of Canada), provide full third-party certification for safety-related pro ucts or systems The NBC does not require full
third-party certification, only that the product or system meets certain minimum re, uirements. Code enforcement officials often rely
on certificationas a guarantee that such is the case.
To provide tbe construction industry with a national evaluation service for innovative materials, products and systems, NRC created
the Canadian Construction Materials Centre.
This service includes the evaluation of new and innovative products for which no btandards exist, and of products where standards
exist but for which no third-party certification program has been established. Mosl provinces and territories use the Centre's
evaluatiorl reports iis a basis for accepting new products

2.The Uniform Bulldlng Code -

3.Standard Building Codes -

The process of adoption by each state is in progress.

The lnternabional Building Code is a stand-alone document which coordinateswi all the other 2000 InternationalCodes including:
InternationalPlumbing Code(tm) (IPC). the InternationalPrivate Sewage Disposal Code(tm) (IPSDC) the International Fire Code,
and the InternationalMechanicalCode(tm) (IMC)
to create a set of comprehensive performance-based guidelines for the design an4 installation of building systems.

Regulatory requirements for building are very localized in the US. Local reguiatiods are based on the Model Building Code (lac).
