Technical Committee "H" Dam Safety

The Committee will present the final draft of a new Bulletin "Dam safety management for all phases of dam life-cycle preceding operational phase".

The presentation will focus on the following topics:

- Dam development phases and actors

- Key issues to be addressed

- Overarching safety management system

- Engineering principles

- Conclusions 

(Participants are invited to bring in their own experience and contribute to a lively discussion on the subject)
