IACS QSCS End User Workshop

Wednesday 5th November 2014 - 09:00 hrs to 17:00 hrs (18:00 hrs if required)

The In & Out Naval and Military Club, 4 St James's Square, London

Since the 1 January 2011 the audit and assessment of compliance with the QSCS has been carried out by independent Accredited Certification Bodies (ACB's). Having now been in operation for nearly four years and given the proven benefits resulting from previous end user workshops, IACS will convene the 2014 workshop between its Members and their ACB's to reflect on their joint experiences of the scheme and to discuss any possible adjustments deemed appropriate to ensure it continues to meet fully the demands and needs of all stakeholders for a robust and consistent scheme of certification of its members.

The purpose of this workshop, to be held at The In & Out Naval and Military Club therefore, is to share openly with each other, our experiences to date, in order to further develop and enhance the scheme.

IACS will also be inviting flag administrations, Classification Societies, ACBs and other interested stakeholders that might have attended previous end user workshops or have expressed an interest to attend, to join us for this 2014 workshop in London.

We believe most, if not all, participants know London reasonably well and will have their own favoured hotels. For those less familiar with London we have provided a list of suggested hotels which are reasonably close to the In & Out Naval and Military Club.
