A new edition of the ICOMIA Small Craft Standards Bulletin has been published. The bulletin provides industry stakeholders early notification on changes to existing standards or new work items which are developed and maintained by the ISO Technical Committee for Small Craft Standards (TC 188).

Edition 15 provides an update of standards following a week and a half of ISO TC 188 virtual working group meetings which, due to the continued travel restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, took place via Zoom from 10 – 20th May 2021

Recent updates include:

  • ISO TC 188 has received a request from ISO TC 22/SC 41 ‘Specific aspects for gaseous fuels’ to develop a standard for CNG/LNG propulsion systems
  • With the publication of ISO/TS 23625 ‘Lithium-ion batteries’ there has been a number of requests to expand the scope and consider other standards or specifications which can be developed jointly with ISO TC 8 SC 12 Large yachts
  • WG 20 – ‘Windows, portlights, hatches, deadlights, and doors’, has started work on a new item, ISO 6017 – ‘Guidelines for auto watertight ventilation shutdown system’

The next ISO TC 188 Working Group meetings will take place virtually via Zoom around October & November 2021 and no physical meetings have currently been arranged for METSTRADE 2021.
