Basis for Recommendation

The Structures Inspectors competence did not meet the requirements set out in CCE-STR-STD-2100, in full, in that the required refresher training was not completed within the required timescales. In addition, the Senior Track & Structures Engineer did not meet the requirements set out in CCE-TMS-420 in relation to a documented annual review of the Structures Inspectors inspection work to ensure continued competency therefore the RAIU make the following safety recommendation:


IÉ IM CCE should review its Competence Management System in terms of both: its identification and tracking of mandated refresher training for Structures Inspectors competence; and its annual review of Structures Inspectors inspection work.
