Since initial climbing development equipment provider dominate by European companies, which assist to grow by the popularity of the sport, especially for significant equipment such as carabiners, ropes, and belay devices.

This month SEACF will try to discuss possibility to implement SEACF standard for climbing equipment. With the label, companies from ASEAN could produce equipment and get standard from SEACF then could go to the ASEAN market.
