British Standard Code of Practice for the Management of Geotechnical Data

Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

Following work completed by the AGS Data Management Committee, including Roger Chandler from Keynetix, the British Standard has this month made available a draft copy of “Code of practice for the management of geotechnical data for ground engineering projects” for review.

This British Standard gives recommendations on the management of geotechnical data throughout the life cycle of civil engineering and building projects at both an organisational and project level which we know are vitally important components of what our clients currently do.

The Standard also gives recommendations on the collection, storage, archiving, sharing and transfer of logical data and is applicable to engineering geologists, geotechnical and environmental engineers, geotechnical data managers, IT managers and project managers.

This British Standard does not cover interpreted data, which may be managed using the building information modelling (BIM) project environment set out in BS 1192 and BS ISO 29481.

We recommend that our clients register to review the Code of practice using this link as soon as possible.
