Visit to DIN central office in Berlin, Germany – Nov 14

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.
