ICOMIA LAUNCHES SMALL CRAFT STANDARDS BULLETIN

ICOMIA

ICOMIA’s Small Craft Standards Bulletin provides industry stakeholders early notification on changes to existing standards and modifications to production methods; as developed and maintained by the ISO (International Organization for Standards) Technical Committee for Small Craft Standards (TC 188).

“2014 is looking like it will be a busy year in terms of ISO Standards” explains Patrick Hemp, ICOMIA’s Technical Manager, “and in particular, TC 188 has a number of upcoming revisions and new publications that will need to be implemented”.

Edition 2014:1 of the ICOMIA Small Craft Standards Bulletin explains how ISO standards are developed and provides an update of standards due to be published, under review or in the early phase of development.

With the support of its members throughout the world and in conjunction with the appropriate associations, ICOMIA lobbies international authorities and major organisations, publishes documents and guidelines and produces tools to facilitate the growth of the industry.

The ICOMIA Small Craft Standards Bulletin is issued biannually and available to download, for free, from the ICOMIA Online Library.

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works.
