SC&RA President Bill Stramer spoke at the Annual Conference of the Crane Industry Council of Australia (CICA), September 1-3, in Perth, Australia.

According to the SC&RA, Stramer's appearance was part of organization's efforts to build and strengthen alliances with industry groups around the world. Stramer's presentation was among follow-up activities to SC&RA's formation of the World Crane & Transport Alliance last October in Amsterdam, The Netherlands at the World Crane & Transport Summit. CICA is a member of that alliance.

In addition to explaining SC&RA's general issues and priorities, Stramer examined major crane and rigging priorities involving the new US cranes & derricks safety rule; EN 13000, the new European standard for crane design; and data loggers on cranes.

He also discussed SC&RA's transportation issues and priorities affecting crane users transporting equipment, including oversize/overweight permit uniformity and a new round of bridge reviews.
