Engineering Criteria Review Board
The Engineering Criteria Review Board ECRB is an advisory board that assists the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission BCDC in evaluating the engineering aspects of projects that require BCDC's permits. Currently, the ECRB is made up of ten eminent professionals, including structural, coastal, and geotechnical engineers, a geologist, a geophysicist and an architect. The ECRB members are professionals in private practice, government service, and academia.
The ECRB members volunteer their time and expertise to advise the Commission regarding seismic and other engineering issues and to assist applicants in designing projects with appropriate engineering criteria. BCDC's staff engineer serves as secretary to the ECRB.
