Description

BS EN 10079 is a European standard that has been brought up to date to reflect the latest developments in defining how steel is supplied and purchased. It has been improved editorially to reflect the current style and presentation of definitions documents being used internationally. It defines the terms for steel products according to:

  • Shape and dimensions
  • Appearance and surface condition.

Although the products are generally defined independently of their end uses or manufacturing processes, it has sometimes been necessary to make reference to these criteria.

There are various classification systems existing in Europe but this standard only deals with definitions for steel products manufactured by, or used in the steel industry or by its customers.

BS EN 10079 provides guidance on the definition systems used in the former European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) Treaty as well as the Statistical office of the European Communities and of the Harmonised Commodity Description and Coding System.

The entries that are presented in this standard have been ordered systematically, and have been grouped by steel products according to:

  • Shape and dimensions e.g. flat products, long products, heavy sections
  • Appearance and surface condition e.g. coated flat products, bright products.

BS EN 10079 also contains an alphabetical index.

All dimensions given in this standard are nominal.
