I recently attended an International Standards Organization week long technical committee meeting in Morioka Japan which was focused on developing standards related to emergency and continuity management. I left impressed with the level of dedication and effort which is being put into standards development at the international level.
The ISO / TC - 292 technical committee was held in Morioka Japan on March 9 - 13, 2015. I attended the meeting as a member of the Canadian delegaation. The picture below is of one of the plenary meeting sessions.
My particular assignment is working on a project, initiated by Russia, that focuses on developing guidelines for monitoring facilities with identified hazards. I'll post more information about that project as the guideline is developed.
