IM-SAFE focuses on proposing a new standard in monitoring. Standardised monitoring process will imply a uniform and replicable inspection process. The new standardised monitoring will enable proper decision-making regarding maintenance needs and measures. Standardisation in monitoring is a key enabler for optimal maintenance strategies, strengthening or retrofitting measures for ensuring the safety of the infrastructure. 

Aligned with this focus, in addition to the new standard on monitoring IM-SAFE proposes:

  1. a new standard on maintenance of the transport infrastructure as well as
  2. a further amendment of the Eurocodes to use monitoring data in for safety of the infrastructure
