Sail-World.com : Early notification of world-wide changes to small craft standards
Early notification of world-wide changes to small craft standards


'ICOMIA'    .

The Small Craft Standards Bulletin, put out by ICOMIA, the International Council of Marine Industry Associations, the international trade association representing the global marine industry, provides industry stakeholders early notification on world-wide changes to existing standards and modifications to production methods.

These are as developed and maintained by the ISO (International Organization for Standards) Technical Committee for Small Craft Standards.

The first edition 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.

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

To access the Bulletin, click here.

About ICOMIA:
ICOMIA brings together national boating federations in one global organisation and represents them at an international level, presenting a strong and united voice when dealing with issues challenging the industry.

No less than 35 national federations across the world are full members of ICOMIA today. Our members include the vast majority of the industrialised countries from North America across to Japan and China and from Finland down to New Zealand.

ICOMIA's working committees predominantly consist of our member associations and provide forums where the national associations can share their experiences and most importantly plan collectively to address issues of the industry worldwide.

With the support of our 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.

ICOMIA acts internationally on behalf of all those concerned for the boating industry's continued success and the public's ability to enjoy boating at all levels in a clean environment.
