The Forum was set up to support the REG Conference. The REG Technical Forum group meets to look at how best to make sure there is consistent application of technical policy across the British fleet. They do this by working closely with colleagues, exchanging knowledge and experience which means the whole group benefits.
It is co-chaired by representatives of the Maritime & Coastguard Agency and one of the Shipping Registries.
Technical experts from across the Red Ensign Group are involved in the Forum.
This forum is responsible for developing new technical standards for the maritime industry, including the development of the REG Yacht Code , which is widely regarded as an industry best practice standard.
