The Standards Advisory Group has been established to assist CIHT to co-ordinate and promote the activities of the Institution in relation to standards advice for materials and pavement design for highways, airfields and industrial purposes. Members of the group sit on a number of British Standards Institution (BSI) Committees developing standards for the industry.
CIHT are seeking to establish a core group of members who are interested in receiving alerts and/or assisting the Institution in our relationship with BSI and developing standards. If you would like to be involved please contact email@example.com
BSI has also recently launched a public online system where new work proposals are accessible for wider view and comment. This is designed to increase awareness of the Standards Development Portfolio. CIHT members may wish to put forward comments through the CIHT and its representatives or simply as a member of the public.
