On behalf of SAC, Guo Hui congratulated the opening of the plenary and affirmed the significance of this event for international standardization in the global shipping and maritime field. Du Gang representing the shipping industry expressed the willingness to continue active participation into international standardization especially with ISO/TC 8 to respond to the industrial restructuring challenges and sail toward a sustainable maritime future.


                            

 

A wide range of topics will be covered in the plenary and subcommittee seminars, including fire safety, rescue, cyber security, ship energy efficiency, ballast water, polar navigation and data collection, deep ocean equipment, etc. Also the future business strategy of the committee will also be considered as a key subject for this conference.

 

Mr. Ki-Tack Lim highly recognized Chinas efforts and contribution for the international maritime industry, and underlined the role of ISO/TC 8 with which IMO will explore collaborative programmes on standardization education and training to improve human-factor safety and sustainability in global maritime activities.

 

ISO/TC 8 serves as an important technical input for global maritime standardization and is highly relevant to practical implementation of UN regulations/conventions. The plenary dedicated to the concept of standards improve global connectivity will further facilitate the technological innovation, production capacity cooperation and restructuring in the shipping and maritime field.

 

Mr. Li Yanqing who as the first Chinese expert has started to serve as the Chair of ISO/TC 8 from 2016 is excited about the opening of this landmark plenary. Speaking about the future strategy, Mr. Li said the committee will watch over a series of key subjects such as seafarer standardization education and training, cyber security, smart ships and so forth.

 

This is the second time for China to host the ISO/TC 8 plenary, with the last meeting held in Dalian in 2004. For Chinese shipping industry, the event also provides an excellent opportunity to access to the international frontier attention and competition in maritime standardization, and raise industry awareness of the importance of standardization for ship manufacturing. In the meanwhile, higher level of standardization will benefit the supply-side reform of the shipping and maritime industry and technological research for the national maritime strategy.
