The International Superyacht Society is seeking a voice within the International Standards Organization by becoming a liaison. Industry experts and liaison organizations drive all aspects of the standard development process, from deciding whether a new standard is needed to defining all the technical content, according to a statement from ISS.

The ISS Technical Committee, lead by Pete Southgate of Cayman Islands MACI and Jo Assael of Döhle Yachts Technical Services, is working to become a “Category A” Liaison within ISO TC8/S12 Large Yachts.

The liaison will bring advantages, such as early access to information that could shape the market and participation in the development of standards, as well as the opportunity to nominate members to working groups within ISO, according to ISS.
