The conference on draft code for sending viewpoints last date is today 4th Sept.

Just to summarize various broad points sent thru various  posts  during this week  fm my end are as iunder:

1.0  STANDARD STRUCTURAL STABILITY CERTIFICATION
( Standard Form  to be included in this Code and also in NBC )

2.0  QUALIFICATIONS & EXPERIENCE  OF PDC , PC & PEER REVIWER
( Complex and special strs exclusively for Lead Mtechs with good experience  , but routine strs for Betchs with good experience)

3.0  CLASSIFICATIONS OF CONSULTANTS
   ( This is important as it is seen that even one man structural experts / Retired structural engineer also working as PDC & PC , Ers / Consultants with limited resources working for str design work , there are big Consultants , so projects / str work must be identified and categorised  to cater all Consultants  , though a higher class Consultant can work on all type of str work .

4.0 CATEGORISATION OF STRUCTURES
( As stated at 3.0 , Categorization is necessary so that Competency cum capability be given due weightage . A design work suffer if it is awarded to a Consultant  not able to deliver effectively for want of competency / capability (resources). Thus this could be included to safeguard against project / work being going into incompetent / incapable  hands.
( Strs can be categorised as Compkex/ Special Structures, Mega structures , Semi mega ( Medium) Strs  , Small Structures & Low Budget Structures)
