Digitale data and BRO
The Key Register of the Subsurface Act (BRO) has been effected since 1 January 2018. It declares administrative bodies have a statutory task to provide subsurface data to a central database with public data about the Dutch subsurface as part of the system of basic registers. With the BRO, the government improves open subsurface data provision and usage by governments and other parties in a standardised format. There is a statutory duty of submission and duty of use and there is also a duty of reporting and a duty of investigation. The BRO contains approximately 25 different registration objects, including soil surveys and soil investigations, groundwater monitoring and models.
Wiertsema & Partners plays an active role in creating the BRO by participating in expert groups, chain tests and software development. For our clients we deliver registration objects Geotechnical cone-penetration test, Geotechnical core-sample description and analysis and Groundwater-monitoring pits to the BRO and as soon as the BRO will be operational for more aspects, we will also provide the Groundwater-level survey and the Groundwater-composition study.
