The standards will apply in climbing procedures, equipments and facilities in the sport and adventure. There is possibility that the standards will include climbing activities in commercial field.

[06 Apr 2007] ASEAN Climbing Standards in Commercial

SEACF will initiate official meeting toward ASEAN Climbing Standard either in Jakarta or Singapore next August.

Officials from ministry of labour from Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Philliines will be invited to the meeting. They will seat in one table with sport climbing federations member of SEACF.

The meeting will try to merge climbing in the sport/adventure activities and industrial activities at other side. Accident rate due to climbing activities in the commercial are very high, it causes most by lack of technical skill of the labour force and lack of equipment provided by the business entreprenuers. The most important objectives of the meeting are to certify people and equipment that are very expensive if we apply CE or US standard which we believe as a factor of less implementation of safety standards in the commercial side in the ASEAN region. Other impact from the meeting is less fortunate sport and adventure climbers could have possibility to a new profession in the commercial field such as to be work-at-heigth supervisors and the like.

SEACF will propose Southeast Climbing Standards as a formal standard within ASEAN region for both sport/adventure, and commercial fields.
