Interventions in improving the image of laboratories

This paper will give an overview of the developments in South Africa related to interventions to ensure that the results obtained from the laboratories are as accurate as possible given the variability of the materials used in Civil Engineering projects. It will identify the benefits observed to date as well as the pitfalls experienced under the various interventions. From the discussion it can be concluded that the large volume of revisions and widespread changes required of the laboratory industry presents an unprecedented challenge for them but the benefits are already starting to be observed and better understood by all parties.
