Comparison of Design Requirements in EC2 and BS 8110

The final draft of EC2: ‘Part 1’ has been published as Draft for Development (a prestandard) to enable Member States to familiarise themselves with it before it is published in about 3 years as a design Code. Since the original draft was issued in 1984 for consultation, it has undergone a number of changes. This article describes the salient features of EC2 and the significant differences between it and BS8110. The comments in the article are based on the September 1988 draft. R.S. Narayanan
