The initiative to establish the ICSA was taken by 6 organizations: ESTA, FEM, AEM, SC&RA, CICA and CCMA.
The ICSA’s role is to:
- Facilitate information sharing and meaningful dialogue between crane industry stakeholders on safety, technical and regulatory issues of concern to the International crane industry.
- Provide an environment for, and encourage the creation of, significant networking opportunities between industry stakeholders and promote consensus positions on behalf of the crane industry on issues of common concern, so that ICSA members can make representation to relevant regulatory and standardization bodies.
- Promote the harmonization of international standards
The meetings are held annually on a rotating schedule, usually linked to one of the major exhibitions. The users group and the manufacturers group meet separately in the morning followed by a joint meeting of both groups in the afternoon.
The last meeting was in Las Vegas, United States, on March 7th, 2017. ESTA was represented by Ton Klijn, ESTA Secretary, and Søren Jansen, ESTA Director.
The next meeting will be in Amsterdam in November.
