The work of the committee ISO/TC 182/WG3 continues with the successful evaluation of 171 comments on the draft European standard for the testing of grouted anchors ISO DIS 22477-5. In all some 325 comments were evaluated over two separate meetings, the first of which took place in London in early April 2017. The task of seeking resolution to the 325 comments was further complicated by the fact that there are three test types and three test methods associated with the test types. In addition, there are several member countries that adopt variations to the different test methods. Despite this, there is no question that the meetings in both London and, more recently, in Lisbon where successful.
On the basis of the evaluation of comments, the document will be amended and resubmitted to the Working Group for further assessment over the coming months.
