Abstract
Prior to and since 2010 when the United Kingdom (UK) had withdrawn all British Standards pertaining to structural design, Malaysia through The Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) has been taking the initiative and the lead in drafting the Malaysian Standards MS EN Eurocodes to replace the existing BS structural design standards used in the construction industry since Malaysia's Independence in 1957. By 2010, five of the Eurocode parts have been drafted into Malaysian National Annexes, relating to structure design in concrete and steel buildings. There are more Eurocode parts to be studied and adopted into the Malaysian Standards and IEM has been tasked by the Department of Standards Malaysia to continue the good work. On the implementation side, IEM is also actively promoting the use of MS EN Eurocodes by practicing engineers in the industry and academia. IEM has proposed a timeline to allow for flexibility and a transitional period for practicing engineers to familiarize themselves with the new MS EN Eurocodes before being fully adopted as mandatory standards in Malaysia. At the same time, IEM had organised a series of Awareness Seminars on Eurocodes all over the country in 2014 and continued this effort in 2015, in line with plans to hold intensive courses and workshops on Eurocode design standards for concrete and steel structures in 2015 as well as in 2016.
