Due to a change of employer, Dr. Joachim Böke, has resigned from his position as convenor of the CEN/TC 191/WG 10 (Technical committee for fixed firefighting systems / water mist system). Together with Dr. Böke, WG 10 has developed an European Standard for water mist systems. Part one of this standard as well as parts 8, 9 and 16 have been published. Parts 3, 6, 11 and 17 are to be published in 2021.
Dr. Böke has been the chairman of this working group for over 20 years. IWMA would like to thank him for his good work, his support and his patience. It has been a pleasure working with him and IWMA wish him all the best for his professional and private future. We all hope to bump into him from time to time at events around the globe.
An interim convenor and then a convenor shall be appointed as soon as possible.
