During its meeting on 25th February, the CIRM Technical Steering Committee agreed CIRM’s 2020 Strategic Technical Plan.
Formerly known as the “Executive Summary”, the Strategic Technical Plan identifies the technical matters that will be assigned highest priority by CIRM. The underlying work will be undertaken by the Technical Office supported by CIRM’s Working Groups.
Alongside long-standing subjects such as GMDSS Modernization, the Marine Equipment Directive and Shipboard Software Maintenance, the 2020 plan includes new subjects such as future maritime communications, participation in standards development and automated ship reporting.
Many of the changes made to the latest Strategic Technical Plan resulted from discussions held during the 2019 Annual Technical Workshop, meaning that CIRM members have directly influenced the content of CIRM’s high-level technical strategy.
The Strategic Technical Plan will be made available to CIRM members next week.
