Measurements of surface pressures and response on the CAARC standard tall building model, made at six establishments, have been compared. In general, the degree of agreement was good and mostly within the scatter of reasonable experiemental accuracy. Small trends were observable in respect of pressure measurements which could be attributed to differences in the approaching longitudinal velocity spectrum and to the requirement for blockage corrections. There were no obvious trends in the dynamic response measurements where the majority of the data compared within ±15%.
