FSTT was formed in 1990. There are now 129 members, including 90 Corporate Members. An annual General Assembly reviews past achievements and plots the course for the future. In April 2008, the Comité français pour les travaux sans tranchée has decided to take on a new name -- France Sans Tranchée Technologies -- to fit better with a French meaning that would still preserve the international acronym.
FSTT holds regular workshops and organizes training courses for engineers, technicians, civil servants and students in conjunction with renown educational bodies like ESTP and OIEau. FSTT is partner to “RESEAUX VRD”, a leading magazine for road works professionals, to publish a monthly review “Réseaux Sans Tranchée” (trenchless networks) distributed among members and widely around.
A successful International No-Dig 92 was held in Paris. Every two years, the national exhibition “Ville Sans Tranchée” (trenchless city) gathers everybody that counts in the sector, near Paris.
