CEN - EN 10027-2

Designation systems for steels - Part 2: Steel numbers

inactive
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 15 September 1992
Status: inactive
Page Count: 16
ICS Code (Ferrous metals): 77.080
scope:

This Part 2 of this European Standard sets out a numbering system, referred to as steel numbers, for the designation of steel grades. It deals with the structure of steel numbers and the organization for their registration, allocation and dissemination. Such steel numbers are complementary to steel names set out in EN 10027-1. Application of this Part 2 of the European Standard is obligatory for steels specified in European Standards. Application is optional for national steels and proprietary steels.

NOTE. Although the scope of the system is limited to steel it is structured so as to be capable of being extended to include other industrially produced materials.

Steel numbers established according to this system have a fixed number of digits (see clause 5). They are better suited for data processing than steel names established according to EN 10027-1.

For steels specified in European Standards the application for allocation of steel numbers (see A.6 to A.9) is the responsibility of the ECISS Technical Committee concerned. For national steel grades the responsibility is that of the national competent body.

NOTE. Applications from European organizations having a specific interest in the standardization of steel and steel products, e.g. AECMA, EUROFER are submitted via the ECISS Central Secretariat (see A.9).
