Response to Viewpoint on Codes of Practice - Sword or Shield by D. Waite and D. Evans

Robert Tristram (G) writes: Some very interesting points have been raised by Dennis Waite and Donald Evans (5 September and 3 October). Few would disagree with the statement to the effect that Codes should be written for the acceptance of fools and the guidance of wise men. Also, it does seem that a great deal of innovative design is stifled by unimaginative and defensive approving authorities: the idea that an approving engineer might be of an altogether lower level of proficiency than the designer does give some cause for concern.
