Subject: base plate bending

dear sirs
my original message was  
"while eurocode 3 uses w=b.t2/6 for base plates,lrfd uses w=b.t2/4. both follow load resistance factor design procedures.
your valuable comments are welcome." 
 i received several comments , may be i was misunderstood.
it is obvious that the first one is the elastic modulus, and the other is plastic.
does that mean in this case ec  is 1.5 times  safer  than the other. 
apart from this there are some cases that the following question comes to mind
can we use plastic section modulus ( following eurocode or lrfd ) for endplate moment connections in case of no prying force (no pretension in the bolts) 
both codes permit either elastic or plastic analysis
