This document provides description of the Eurocodes database for Nationally Determined Parameters (NDPs database), which was created in the frame of the Administrative Arrangement (AA) between the Enterprise and Industry Directorate General (DG ENTR) and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) regarding the support to the implementation, harmonization and further development of the Eurocodes. The database contains information about the National Annexes to each Eurocode Part and the respective NDPs, their recommended values and the values chosen by the EU and EFTA Member States and the EU Candidate Countries. The classification of the NDPs aiming at simultaneous mirroring the functionality of the NDPs in the code and the data type needed for the definition of the database fields is presented. The NDPs database will constitute the basis for the analysis of the NDPs and for the definition of strategies tending to achieve further convergence and consequently aiming at facilitating the achievement of the European single Market for construction works and structural construction products. The conditions for access to the database, NDPs upload rules and the possibilities for data post-processing are overviewed. The useru2019s manuals regarding the upload of the NDPs and data post-processing are incorporated as annexes to the report.
