This is a new version of the site designed to include participation by national organisations interested in Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety. The aim is to have an International Group where each country runs its own scheme and has its own identity, but reports and publications will be held in a common data base for engineers everywhere to use. Lessons to be learned are not restricted by geography. The first to join is Southern Africa which encompasses the Republic of South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mozambique, Zambia and Namibia. Their Sponsors are the Joint Structural Division, the South African Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers. Details are to be found by going to the International page and following the link to CROSS-SA where instructions on how to report are given. A warm welcome is extended to Southern Africa.
