New antifouling technology, coatings performance, global maritime standards, environmental regulations and more will be on the agenda when the fourth Global Marine Coatings Forum convenes later this year.

Sponsored by the International Paint and Printing Ink Council (IPPIC), the forum began in 2006. Every two years, conferees meet to discuss the future growth of the industry and the impacts of ever-increasing and stringent safety, health and environmental regulations.

The Global Marine Coatings Forum is an international gathering that focuses on the most important concerns in the global industry.

The event draws representatives from suppliers and formulators, ship owners, ship yards, regulatory bodies, and classification societies worldwide.

This year’s forum will be held Nov. 6-8 in Singapore.

Topics

In presentations and panel discussions, this year’s event will shed new light on the most important topics in the global marine coatings industry, including performance standards for protective coatings; updates on antifouling and preventing the spread of invasive species; implementation of the Antifouling Systems Treaty; and International Maritime Organization (IMO) standards for ballast water tanks.

The third forum, held over two days in Singapore in 2010, drew more than 50 participants from 15 countries and focused on topics that included:

• 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 from shipping; and

• Product stewardship and sustainability.
