From 37°C in Durban to 2° C in Berlin – Nov 2017

As Chairman of the Pan-European committee TC 182/WG3, Dr Devon Mothersille travelled from the 37° C heat of Durban, South Africa to Berlin, Germany where temperatures plummeted to 2° C. Over a period of two hard working days Dr Mothersille chaired a crucial meeting attended by 11 European colleagues represented by France, Finland, Germany, Portugal, Denmark, Switzerland, the UK and Austria. The objective was to complete the final evaluation of comments received on the new International Standards Organization document ISO/DIS 22477-5 (Testing of Grouted Anchors). This pivotal document will set out the procedures and test methods which govern the testing of grouted anchors. The meeting was highly productive and Dr Mothersille wishes to take this opportunity to thank his colleagues for their valued contribution throughout the execution of the drafting process.

The document is now in its final stages and anticipated publication will be in June 2018.
