Annex A of this British Standard provides guidance on the concrete quality to be specified for selected exposure classes, intended working life and nominal cover to normal reinforcement. It does not give guidance on stainless steel and non‑metallic reinforcement. Guidance on nominal cover to reinforcement for structural and fire consideration is available in other publications, e.g. structural design codes of practice.
