The American Boat and Yacht Council said today that it will hold its eighth annual Standards Week from Jan. 9-13, 2017, in Charleston, S.C.

The ABYC said project technical committee meetings and the council’s annual meeting will take place at the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston.

Committee meeting topics this year will include hull piping, electrical, fuel and ventilation, electrical components, hull performance, firefighting equipment and gas detectors, control systems and navigation lights.

The ABYC said Standards Week is a critical step in the development of the council’s standards. Participation in the process is encouraged from a diverse group, each with different perspectives and areas of expertise.

Attendees learn what standards are being revised or newly considered and how they could affect the future of boating.

The ABYC’s annual meeting and cocktail reception will be held from 7-9 p.m. on Jan. 9.

The events are free, but registration is necessary. Information about Standards Week, ABYC’s annual meeting and the surrounding events is available at www.abycinc.org/standardsweek.
