NS-TAST-GD-017 - Civil Engineering

This Technical Assessment Guide consists of seven separate but related documents, all of which are accessed from this page.

The head document is supported by six annexes, addressing the breadth of civil engineering within the scope of ONR’s authority. The suite of documents present ONR guidance to inspectors and the interpretation of the Safety Assessment Principles and relevant good practice as they relate to civil engineering structures, systems and components. These documents were authored by civil engineering Specialist Inspectors.

The head document includes guidance applicable throughout the entire life cycle of a civil engineering structure, system and component. The documents have been prepared using the annex format so that stage specific guidance can be efficiently accessed. Each annex provides stage specific guidance, supplementary to that provided in the head document.
