Standards for reinforcement

The three grades conform to the three recommended ductility classes in BS :2004 (Eurocode 2). It should be noted that below 8mm diameter, reinforcing steel to BS 4449 does not comply to BS EN with respect to ductility. This is not the only occasion where BS 4449:2005 has had to take into account the requirements of BS EN .
