The revision is undertaken to meet new demands in geotechnical engineering looking at the coming 20 years, e.g. design in rock, dynamics, numerical methods, probability. Furthermore, the revision is performed focusing on the users‘ need with the main goals of; ease-of use and harmonisation. The paper highlights the steps taken to ensure that the goals will be obtained for the primary target audience of Eurocode; practitioners – competent engineers. Finally, the paper presents an overview of some of the major changes compared to the first generation of Eurocode, that will affect the practicing geotechnical engineer. Further details of the changes are presented in additional papers presented by TC250/SC7 at this conference, all named Tomorrow’s geotechnical toolbox.
