Cladding: the Case for Improving Inspection

Inspection of structures in service is generally recognised as being necessary to contribute to assurance of safety and to provide a basis for decisions on maintenance and repair. Over the years, in the 12 reports which have appeared since 1977, SCOSS has drawn attention to structures where the current level of inspections appears to be insufficient to identify emerging unsafe situations, or where there is a particular inspection difficulty.
