ASEF granted consultative status at IMO
AMIM is proud to announce that Active Shipbuilding Experts Federation (ASEF, formerly known as Asian Shipbuilding Experts Forum), an international grouping of associations of shipbuilding / marine industries of which AMIM is a founding member, has at long last been granted consultative status by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
With this coveted status, ASEF is set to play an active and significant role in enhancing the technical and safety levels of international shipping and marine environmental protection through the research works of its members. This would also give Asian shipbuilders, which contribute around 90 percent of the world’s newbuilding tonnage, a more audible voice on the global stage and influence deliberations and formulation of technical standards of shipping and the marine industry at IMO and other international bodies such as International Standards Organization (ISO) and International Association of Classification Societies (IACS).
ASEF counts as its members shipbuilding and marine industry associations from China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam and Sri Lanka which represent an estimated 90% of the world’s newbuilding deliveries. Rebranded in 2015 after its initial establishment in 2007, ASEF’s principle objective is to contribute to the discussion and discourse on various technical issues in the marine industry covering shipbuilding, ship repair / conversion and offshore structures.
AMIM will continue to provide inputs during ASEF meetings to meet the Federation’s ASEF’s principle objective to contribute to the discussion and discourse on various technical issues in the marine industry covering shipbuilding, ship repair / conversion and offshore structures.
