Abstract: This report addresses the activities carried out for the adoption and implementation of the Eurocodes in the non-EU countries in the Balkan region within the context of the Enlargement and Integration Action of the JRC. Within the national framework for implementation of the Eurocodes each country must define National Determined Parameters (NDPs) to be applied on their territory. These parameters are left open for national choice and should cover country differences in geographical, geological and climatic conditions, different design and construction practice, as well as, different safety level requirements. NDPs are required for national implementation of the Eurocodes. The main objective of the activities presented herein was to focus on further adoption and implementation of the Eurocodes in the non-EU countries in the Balkan region. In particular, it serves to assess recent progress, difficulties and needs for the definition of the NDPs and NAs since the first workshop and to boost regional collaboration for cross-border harmonization of NDPs. Generally, it may be concluded that most of the non-EU countries in the Balkan region have started the definition of NDPs. Most countries have adopted the Recommended Values, with the exception for wind, snow, thermal and seismic loads. Financial and political support is needed for developing the National Annexes, in particular for the definition of climatic and seismic actions maps.
