For more than twenty years, the design of steel-framed buildings in the UK, including those where composite (steel and concrete) construction is used, has generally been in accordance with the British Standard BS 5950. This first appeared in 1985 to replace BS 449 and introduced designers to the concept of limit state design. However, BS 5950 was withdrawn in March 2010 and replaced by the various parts of the Structural Eurocodes. Bridge design in the UK has generally been in accordance with BS 5400, which was also introduced in the early 1980s and was also replaced in 2010. The Structural Eurocodes are a set of structural design standards, developed by the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) over the last 30 years, to cover the design of all types of structures in steel, concrete, timber, masonry and aluminium. In the UK, they are published by BSI under the designations BS EN 1990 to BS EN 1999.

 Each of the ten Eurocodes is published in several parts, and each part is accompanied by a National Annex that adds certain UK-specific provisions to go alongside the CEN document when it is implemented in the UK. In England, implementation of these Standards for building design is achieved through Approved Document A to the Building Regulations. In Scotland and Northern Ireland, corresponding changes will be made to their regulations. It is expected that adoption of the Eurocodes by building designers will increase steadily from 2010 onwards. As a public body, the Highways Agency is committed to specifying the Eurocodes for the design of all highway bridges as soon as it is practicable to do so. British Standard information reflected in the numerous BDs and BAS will be effectively replaced, and a comprehensive range of complementary guidance documents will be produced.
