Wednesday 4th November 2015 - 08:30 hrs to 17:00 hrs (18:00 hrs if required)

The Toshi Center Hotel Tokyo, Room 601 on the 6th floor

Since 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 five years and given the proven benefits resulting from previous end user workshops, IACS will convene the 2015 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 Toshi Center Hotel located in the Nagata-cho business district of Tokyo1 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 2015 workshop.

Participants intending to attend the workshop are requested to please advice IACS Quality Secretary by email at the address shown below. ClassNK are kindly hosting this EUW and extend an open invitation to dinner shortly after the workshop closes.
