Always that it takes place a re-edition of the Code, multitude of spontaneous remarks arise on this matter. I don't want to be less and, since my professional activity is essentially developed about the quality control of the reinforced concrete structures, I have decided to expose some observations in relation with articles regarding this subject. I think that the spanish Code, in broad outline, it is a good Code from the point of view of technical content. However, if it should had a better wording it would help us to undertand and to interpret correctly some paragraphes that are confused. I refer specifically to the related with control of the steel. The remarks that I include, with respect but without reserves, refer, rather than criticism, to personal criterions and viewpoints, with the aim that some concepts will be included in further editions.
