The Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has joined the U.K.’s global program on Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety.

SEI created a U.S. program: Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety United States (CROSS-US). Anonymously filed reports are forwarded to a team of distinguished subject matter experts for review.

The reports, with added expert analysis commentary, are then made available on the website to all free of charge. CROSS also tracks trends, publishes summary or theme reports, and may direct issues of interest, such as code-writing bodies, to organizations that can improve the standards of practice.

Groups and individuals interested in structural safety are encouraged to submit reports. CROSS-US reports to the SEI Board of Governors, and will be run through two volunteer groups, an executive committee, and a panel.
