Comment | More

Registration is under way for the Third Global Marine Coatings Forum, presented by the International Paint and Printing Ink Council (IPPIC) and scheduled for Nov. 2-4 in Singapore.

IPPIC said the event will offer “a unique, interactive forum for exchanging views and gaining new perspectives on the future of the industry in uncertain economic times and the impacts of ever-increasing and stringent safety, health and environmental regulations.”

The program will include presentations and panel discussions, and will address issues related to the global marine-coatings industry, including:

• Performance standards for protective coatings;

• Ballast tanks and void spaces;

• Antifouling Systems Treaty;

• International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships;

• Guidelines for preventing the spread of invasive species;

• Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions; and

• Product Stewardship and Sustainability

Also addressed during the conference will be current IMO Committee activities, including the Marine Environmental Protection and Marine Safety committees.

The IPPIC said the conference is expected to draw attendees from coatings suppliers and formulators; ship owners; shipyards; regulatory bodies; and classification societies. More details on the program will be announced in the near future, the council said.

More information is available from John Hopewell, conference secretariat, at jhopewell@paint.org.
