JSTRA has been participating in international standardization projects for ISO and IEC as a mirror committee in the maritime field. In this capacity, the Association proposes and reviews drafts of international standards.
To fulfill its mission, JSTRA has founded a standardization committee under the ship technology strategy board. Further, the committee is divided into 11 sub-committees and 1 council to address each area of expertise.
To strategically address the development of standards at ISO and IEC, JSTRA has organized projects for the following five items. They are considered to be particularly important.
Development of ISO Standards for marine environmental risk assessment method of biocidally active substances used for anti-fouling systems on ships and marine environmental risk assessment method for anti-fouling systems on ships using biocidally active substances.
Development of ISO Standards for installation guidelines for a ship communications network of improved communication for shipboard equipment and systems that are independent from navigational equipment networks and engine-control networks.
Development of management guidelines and a practical manual for ISO strategies for the maritime industry.
Development of ISO standards targeted at reinforcing the industry base through improving efficiency by reducing the number of work steps in the coating process.
Development of the draft for the ship stability monitoring system for safety navigation.
JSTRA formulates new drafts or revises existing standards if considered necessary by precisely understanding the industry’s needs that change constantly.
Furthermore, the Association publishes JIS F standards CD-ROMs used by domestic and international concerned parties to promote the dissemination of JIS.
