This year, practical application notes for the verification formats and optimal design procedures for Part 1-8 "Joints" are included in addition to the revision of Part 1-1 "General Design Rules". With the introduction of the Eurocodes, there are also design changes for aluminium structures. Since there is no comparable European code, DIN 18807 Parts 3 and 9 remain in official use. As a result of the differing delineation of design rules, detailing and application regulations and construction rules, there were gaps in the regulations, which will now be filled by DIN EN 1090 Parts 4 and 5.
