The participants came from many parts of the world - starting with Korea, Taiwan and Turkey, through to Finland, Belgium and Serbia, and ending with Columbia. It was an exceptional event, which provided a platform for sharing the experience, different approaches and know-how of the Far and the Middle East, Europe and South America, within the TIC sector (Testing, Certification and Inspection).

More than ten speakers contributed to the discussion on some key topics in the field, the common factor of which is the safety and sustainability of the global world from the perspective of the organizations whose aim it is to assess and verify conformity with what should be applied in comparison to what actually exists.
