The 6th edition can be used for all types of building construction designed for static loading and is based on Execution Class 2 structural steelwork designed in accordance with BS 5950-1 or BS EN 1993-1-1 (including BS EN 1993-1-8 and BS EN 1993-1-10) and executed in accordance with BS EN 1090-1 and BS EN 1090-2.
BCSA Director of Engineering Dr David Moore said: “The NSSS clarifies and aids the process of translating designers’ requirements into specific work instructions for execution. Specifiers are encouraged to use this latest NSSS as the default specification for all steel building structures.”
