Experts from municipalities Amersfoort, Rotterdam, Enschede, Oosterhout and Rhenen will provide education Dec. 8 in preventing excavation damage with C5P.
Currently, excavation damage is a growing problem in the Netherlands.
Since Jan. 1, 2022, the regulator, Agentschap Telecom / Rijksdienst Digitale Infrastructuur, has been enforcing ever more stringently, using the CROW500 guideline as an interpretation of the WIBON.
One result is that several municipalities have already received fines and reprimands for not having things sufficiently in order.
The KLO is the organization dedicated to preventing excavation damage. The Municipal Platform Cables and Pipelines (GPKL) is one of the members of the KLO and provides one of the board members with Berry Kok.
The CROW500 program consists of an expert team, audit team and a digital application. The digital application is a collaboration between the excavation chain, the KLO and KE-chain.
This year the first municipalities started operationally using the digital application. The experts involved in the program are very enthusiastic about the C5P program.
During the December 8 Webinar, the possibilities and opportunities of C5P were shared by the municipalities already involved.
It tells of the challenge of meeting the CROW500 guideline as a municipality.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of this C5P app?
