With aim to harmonize standards in the area of civil engineering and its associated activities, Europa implemented Eurocodes. Their implementation in the countries of lower standard is followed with many problems. The experiences of applying eurocodes, in general, showed a very large selection of parameters which in direct practice don’t have a greater impact. Our findings suggest that there will be a revision of most of the parameters involved in eurocodes. The Republic of Macedonia is in the period preceding the adoption of national parameters of eurocodes and long time discussing how to define the national parameters. From that perspective, the far has come with Eurocode 7. Basic problems, in our opinion, for the implementation of eurocodes, including eurocode7, is essential to reduce the number of parameters, also is need training to engineering staff for implementation of these Eurocodes in their applications. The realization of this is necessary to prepare an abridged version of the eurocode in order to be easily accessible and receptive of the engineering profession.
