Canadians and ECOL sign mutual recognition pact

A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between ECOL and the British Columbia Association for Crane Safety (BCACS) from Canada. 

The agreement – which was signed in Munich during the Bauma exhibition in April – will in future mean that ECOL card-holders in Europe will be able to work in British Columbia without taking any further tests, and vice versa, as the two bodies’ training standards are fully aligned.  The two organisations hope that the agreement will eventually apply to all of Canada.
