Results fourth Data Collaboration Committee meeting
The IAPH Data Collaboration Committee met 13 July for its fourth online meeting since its creation last fall. Committee members were joined by Julian Abril, Head of the Facilitation (FAL) Section at the IMO, for a debrief on the latest Facilitation Committee (FAL 45) and the work of the IMO Expert Group on Data Harmonisation. Members also had a discussion on the guidelines on cybersecurity for ports and port facilities, which a dedicated working group had completed under the leadership of Committee chairman Pascal Ollivier, in time for submission to the next Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) of IMO. Members also took note of latest developments on port call optimisation, including the concept of timeslot management (see article below). The next meeting of the Committee will be held 12 October, from 4-6 PM CEST.
