The COA organised a meeting for Flexitank companies in Qingdao on Friday 24 May 2019. Attended by 64 members, the conference agenda included:
- the COA quality management scheme
- rail impact testing
- flexitanks for reefers
- the environmental programme for recycling used flexitanks (It is proposed to set up a directory of global recycling companies equipped to handle flexitanks).
In addition, the meeting discussed the proposal to change the current COA rail impact test procedure to the internationally recognised United Nations manual of tests and criteria No. 41.
The proposal will be developed over the coming months.
