This is the year end report which will be presented to the Board in February and should be posted in the SEAOC Web page, Inspection Committee. An abreviated version is to appear in the Newletter. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month and will begin 1996 with our first meeting at Noon, February 20 at the SEAOSC office in Whittier. Topics of discussion will include the developments of the Inspection Agency document through ASTM and a review of the quality assurance efforts promoted through an Apprentice Program for Special Inspectors. Please contact me if you plan to attend. Sandy Pringle (310)798-6868 or sandypringle(--nospam--at)earthlink.net Inspection Practices Committee A Review of accomplishments for 1995. After much preparation, the IPC presented ENGINEERING & INSPECTION '95 seminar on March 11. Widely attended and acclaimed, this seminar is the beginning of a potential series opening up much needed lines of communication. We have continued to be of service to the Professional community with presentations and seminars to local organizations. A presentation to FEMA and another to OES regarding Los Angeles RGA 1-91(pressure grout injection of unreinforced masonry), Presentations on the inspection of "Drilled-in Anchors" to the Building and Construction Inspection Academy in East L.A. and another to the Carpenters Union in Whittier and another to the annual Convention/Conference of the American Construction Inspectors Association. Our phones are open and we frequently receive calls for clarifications and definitions, procedure descriptions and product applications. Although we don't profess to have all the answers, we have been able to make a significant contribution and have continued to develop access to areas of information for the Engineering community as regards Inspection Practices. We monitor the Internet Bulletin Board developed by the Computer Applications Committee and occasionally we have been able to make contributions. We currently maintain membership in ASTM and chair a sub-committee on the development Standards for Inspection Agencies. We also serve on the Board for the Quality Assurance Committee. This necessitates meetings twice a year for several days; June 1995 was in Denver and December 1995 was in Norfolk. These are very productive meetings. The approach to quality assurance needs to be made on as many fronts as possible and we are doing our part at the international level and the local level. We are currently members of the American Society for Quality Control, the Applied Technology Council, the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing, Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, California Preservation Foundation, International Conference of Building Officials and the American Concrete Institute. We are looking forward to a strong 1996 and anticipate participation in several of the planned presentations and seminars. We currently have a seminar under consideration and would appreciate any input from the Board Thank you for opportunity to be of service, Sandy Pringle Structural Inspection Consultants (310)598-1970 Chair Inspection Practices Committee A Review of accomplishments for 1995.
