Mar 31, 2014

Mark Peters (Director) and Andy Wilkins (Associate Director) from Byrne Looby's Galway Office have both been appointed to National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) Technical Committee 15, Sub-committee 07 (Geotechnics) which is charged with review of the upcoming proposed changes to EN ISO 1997 and associated implementation standards.

The first meeting of this committee was held at the NSAI Offices in Dublin on the 27th March where the proposed amendments to Chapter 8 of EN ISO 1997-1, Anchorages, were reviewed and options for the Irish National Annex discussed.  In addition the over-arching aim of this technical committee – to harmonise the Irish approach to Geotechnical design with the UK approach - was also discussed.
