On 18th and 19th of May, the EFESC Standards Committee held a meeting at the IPC Groene Ruimte in Arnhem in the Netherlands. The main items on the agenda were:
- update of ECS4 and ECS4(S) and associated score sheets
- proposals for a theory test database and online applications
- verification procedures for assessors
- development of additional standards
- numerical scoring system
- validity of certificates
IPC Groene Ruimte’s simulator for wood under tension was used to test different setups to include in the ECS for training and examining crosscutting techniques using simulators.
Updated versions of ECS4 and simulations will become available on this website as soon as the review process has been completed.
