S-Risk in Brussels starting in January 2016

06/11/2015

As of January 1, 2016, IBGE-BIM will put forward S-Risk as the standard model for use in the framework of sustainable soil management in the Brussels region.

Brussels will rely on the same S-Risk model that is currently applicable for the Flanders region. Hence, companies with a license for the Flemish version of S-Risk will not have to order an additional license.

Companies interested in purchasing a license can find more information on our Registration page.

User manual updated

04/11/2015

The S-Risk user manual has been updated and can be found on our Documents page, in English and Dutch. Typos and inconsistencies have been corrected and we included new content on the features introduced by S-Risk 1.1.

Downtime for server migration

05/09/2015

Coming Monday, September 9th, we will migrate S-Risk to a more powerful server. Because of this, the S-Risk portal and simulator will be offline between 9am and 10am.

New FAQ added

A new entry was added to our FAQ page, explaining why certain metals can not be customized:

  • Why can’t I customize the properties for copper, nickel, mercury, zinc or lead?

FAQ updates

10/06/2015

Two of our Frequently Asked Questions have been revised and updated, and a new one added:

  • How to interpret the results of the risk table of application II (RI, ExCR, pRI and CI values)?
  • How to model the situation of a basement in contact with groundwater?
  • How to simulate the presence of a paved surface?

Explanations have been adjusted and extended, and a new, more efficient workaround for a basement in contact with groundwater has been formulated. The FAQ content was discussed and developed in close collaboration with VEB and OVAM.

S-Risk license agreement updated

13/05/2015

The S-Risk license agreement has been revised and updated, in order to make it more suitable with regard to the use of S-Risk in an interregional or international context. The new license agreement will be applicable to all new S-Risk licenses. For existing licensees, the old license agreement remains in effect. 

These adjustments do not affect or change the S-Risk operational service in any way.
