How CROSS-UK is structured
The CROSS Technical Board is responsible for setting the technical and engineering strategy for CROSS-UK. The CROSS-UK team work with the Expert Panels to implement the strategy.
Structural-Safety Ltd (SSL) is the legal entity for CROSS-UK. SSL is owned equally by the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), who founded CROSS-UK in 1976. Both are registered charities in the UK. The entity was established to allow the two institutions to jointly manage CROSS-UK. It provides benefits to professionals and the public and is independent of influences which could affect the objectivity of decision making.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have supported CROSS-UK since 1995.
From 2020, CROSS-UK began working with the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) to develop and run CROSS-UK for fire safety.
