About the Safety Commission
Safety commission have members from many different UIAA member
federations. The manufacturers of equipment which use the UIAA safety
standards are also represented as trade members.
We also give climbers and mountaineers advice how to treat their equipment, and how best to use it to avoid accidents.
To minimise accidents in mountaineering and climbing by:
- Developing standards for mountaineering and climbing equipment to minimise accidents caused by equipment failure or unsafe design.
- Analysing the market for mountaineering and climbing equipment to determine if the existing standards should be revised.
- Reviewing mountaineering and climbing accidents to determine if existing standards are at a high enough level and, where necessary, to modify them.
- Accrediting laboratories that tests mountaineering and climbing equipment to ensure that the test results are in accordance with UIAA standards.
