|Abstract:||The paper describes the rationale and justification for a European code for the design of glass structures, its parts or kits for use in civil engineering works, outlining the specific aims and reasons for standardisation in this area, and the main interested parties who will benefit from the new standard. In view of the importance of the construction industry in the European market, the proposal examines the benefits of the new Eurocode, or conversely, the detriments were it not to be implemented. Moreover, given the number of construction works currently using glass products both as primary and secondary elements in the absence of a European design standard, the proposal considers the urgency with which it is required. The need for the standard is examined also in consideration of the position of European glass producers and construction industry in the global market. The main part of paper explains the strategy of future activities for preparation of draft of the new Eurocode for the glass structures. The tentative list of contents of the standards is also presented emphasising the issues of safety|
