The European Creep Collaborative Committee (ECCC) are organizing an information day on creep data validation and assessment procedures to be held in Dusseldorf, Germany, on 18 October 1995.

The ECCC is an independent group of alloy producers, manufacturers and plant operators formed, in 1993, to co-ordinate creep data development activities throughout Europe. The group is funded as a concerted action programme under the Community's specific research and technological development programme in the field of industrial and materials technologies (1990-1994) (BRITE/EURAM II).

Following two year's of in-depth critical review of the current data generation and assessment procedures, ECCC is holding this information day to publicize and promote the comprehensive recommendations/guidelines which it has drawn up for the generation, exchange and assessment of creep, stress-rupture and stress relaxation data.

These recommendations are based on a detailed review of national and international standards, published literature and the testing and assessment practices of major European creep testing laboratories. They will be of immense value to all those interested in the creep testing and assessment of high temperature materials.

The information day will be of interest to European organizations involved in creep data generation, collation and assessment. All the major industrial and research organizations are expected to attend and talks will be given by leading experts in the field.

The ECCC recommendations (five volumes) will be distributed in advance to all those registering for the information day. The major themes of these recommendations are:

- Optimum testing practices to ensure high quality source data;
-Accurate data exchange and optimized data collation procedures;
- Robust procedures for data assessment.
