Key elements of ACEC’s successful 1998 seminar series for consulting engineers on Y2K have been collected for production into hard copy and downloadable formats. With financial assistance from Industry Canada, ACEC is producing a Y2K handbook, which will be available free of charge in English, French and Spanish.

Given the importance of the Y2K issue in terms of liability and accountability towards clients and partners among other players, ACEC developed its Y2K resource in collaboration with ENCON Insurance Managers Inc.

Given also the far-reaching relationships between many member firms and their peers across North and South America, ACEC is producing a Spanish version of the document so that our Latin American counterparts can take advantage of ACEC information on Y2K currently available to Canadian consulting engineers. This, along with a Spanish version of the ACEC web site, will enhance members’ dealings with Latin American entities by leveling the playing field as it relates to Y2K liability issues.
