PETER O'Hara, vice president of the U.K. Division of Metal Improvement Co Inc, is an active member of a steering committee based in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Cranfield Institute of Technology who are working to define and introduce international standards which will effect the manufacture, maintenance and repair of aircraft. To date, the aerospace manufacturers have defined and enforced their own widely varying specifications and standards. The committee have lobbied prime aircraft manufacturers, several of whom are members of the committee, together with influencial authorities such as the C.A.A. and M.O.D. The committee firmly believes it is in the interests of the manufacturers, support organisations and consumers to standardise and improve specifications internationally. Indeed, there is evidence to suggest that many manufacturers are currently upgrading their specifications to benefit from improved technology.
