We have just finished the 27th meeting of TC250/SC7 in the Hague, Netherlands. Our hosts, Fugro, provided a splendid venue for our 2 days of discussion - plus an excellent meal for all delegates at a restaurant in the ton last night.
This meeting was the last that Leendert Buth of NEN, the Dutch standards body, would be serving as Secretary of SC7. Leendert has been an important mainstay of the committee's work ever since I have know him (for 15 years, at least). On behalf of SC7, I presented Leendert with a leaving present - a framed and signed copy of the cartoon 'The Perfect European'.
