 Summary:
 It is the responsibility of each country that introduces Eurocodes in national standardization to bring national annexes to Eurocodes that regulate nationally determined parameters in elements specific to each country individually. Institute for Standardization of Bosnia and Herzegovina opened this process in 2013. However, the most specific aspect for each country is related to the natural actions to the structures, like snow load, wind, seismic and thermal actions. Definition of such parameters require a comprehensive approach and significant efforts by many stakeholders to uniform levels of safety in construction in Europe and particular country. Institute for Standardization of Bosnia and Herzegovina through its technical committee BAS TC 58 – Structural Design - Eurocodes EN 1990, 1, 7, 8 and 9 and supported by partners from Czech Republic and hydrometerlogical institutes from Bosnia and Herzegovina produced, adopted and published national annexes to Eurocodes 1 and 8, that define natural actions to the structures. This enables structural and civil engineers unique approach to the design of load bearing engineering structures by applying the most modern codes for structural design and for highest level of safety in construction practice in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
