In October 2014 Dr Devon Mothersille was formally appointed Convenor to Working Group 3 (WG3) after a special resolution was approved by International Standards Organisation (ISO) members. Essentially WG3 is engaged to facilitate the revision of EN ISO 22477-5 ‘Testing of Geotechnical Structures – Testing of pre-stressed ground anchors’. In his capacity as Convenor, in November 2014, Dr Mothersille attended a sub-committee meeting (ISO/TC182/SC1) held at DIN central offices in Berlin, Germany. Dr Mothersille presented the historic status of the draft document (prEN ISO 22447-5) and also a forward strategy for engaging new members for WG3 and completing this long-awaited testing standard.
Dr Devon Mothersille stands alongside statutes of eminent thinkers C.P.W. Beuth (main instigator of Prussia’s industrial renewal) and W.v.Humboldt (founder of the University of Berlin) outside DIN headquarters in Berlin, Germany
