Jotun welcomes decision to circulate ISO 19030

18 August 2015

The 17 National Standardization Bodies represented on ISO’s Marine Environment Protection Sub-committee (ISO-TC8-SC2) has voted in favour of circulating ISO 19030 parts 1 and 2 as Draft International Standards.

In anticipation of final approval of the standard expected next year, Jotun will update Performance Guaran-tees offered as a part of its Hull Performance Solutions so that they are fully compliant with the standard.

According to Geir Axel Oftedahl (Jotun’s Business Development Director, Hull Performance Solutions), the purpose of establishing these standards is to prescribe practical methods for measuring changes in ship-specific hull and propeller performance and to define performance indicators for hull and propeller maintenance, repair and retrofit activities.
