The harmonisation of anchor design within the limit state framework of the Eurocode presented a challenge due to the different design and testing practices in use in the various countries. An Evolution Group (EG1) was set up by TC250/SC7 tasked with developing a standard that conformed with the limit state philosophy and which could be used in the member countries. This paper presents the basis of a draft standard that has been prepared by EG1, which considers the ULS and SLS of the restrained structure and of the anchor itself and introduces the force FServ.k which considers the effect of prestress on the anchor force. The application of the recommendations is illustrated by a design example
