Standard Materials

Hello,
I am an American engineer trying to model a steel frame that utilizes standard European steel sections. I am able to find tables that list all dimensions and section properties for the members. My real question is: Do certain standard European structural steel shapes such as the IPE beam come in only certain materials. In America, W-beams come in A992 material only. Channels, angles, and some others are made of A36 steel. Does Europe work the same way? If so is there some sort of table that tells the material grade for the certain shapes?

Thank you.
Rachel
