Bridge Inspector Certification scheme busted, Abergele

About this event

BICS was introduced in January 2016 and to date only 17 people (Feb 2018) have successfully completed the process to become either a certified Inspector or Senior Inspector. It is written into BD63/17 and in June 2018 (was November 2017) becomes a requirement for inspecting motorway and all-purpose trunk roads bridges owned and managed by Highways England, Transport Scotland, the Welsh Assembly and the Department for Infrastructure Northern Ireland.

  • Where does it come from?
  • Why is it necessary?
  • Who manages it?
  • What is the process?
  • Do I need training?

Andy will try to answer all of these questions, and probably more, in an interactive presentation.
