The objective of this paper is to compare the structural design and detailing provisions included in Eurocode 8 (the values in brackets) to the corresponding provisions in the recent Romanian Codes of Practice. The comparison refers to regular multistory frame structures. Both Romanian and European Codes are based on the capacity design procedure and for both of them, for multistory flexible buildings, the interstory drift control governs the design. So, some concluding remarks, referring to the major differences between the two Codes of Practice can be pointed out.
