Sultanate of Oman visit to Worcester HQ
 
 
CMCA(UK)’s headquarters in Brindley Court recently played host to a delegation of senior visitors from the Omani government and the United Kingdom National Codification Bureau.
The UK Ministry of Defence has always enjoyed an excellent working relationship with their Omani counterparts and a bilateral framework exists between the two countries to share military knowledge and best practice. On this occasion, and in our capacity as the MOD’s single source codification contractor, the purpose of the meeting was to explore opportunities for greater cooperation in the areas of codification training and knowledge transfer. We look forward to continuing our joint dialogue with the Omani National Codification Bureau and a reciprocal visit to Muscat is planned before the end of the year.

Practicalities of Codification Training Course 
 
In July CMCA(UK)’s Head of Codification Services, Gary Harman spent a week delivering the annually presented “Practicalities of Codification” training course. The course was held at the Furstenfeldbruck offices of ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik GmbH, who are the provider of world leading codification software tool N-CORE.
 
The course was attended by National Codification Bureau and industry representatives from Germany, The Netherlands, Malaysia and Indonesia. Gary commented “it is always a very enjoyable week and the attendees benefit from learning skills and gaining vital codification knowledge that will greatly assist them in their day to day roles".
 
 
IIOM International Conference & Exhibition 
The Business Development team were back on the road in June for three superb days of the biennial IIOM Conference in London. From behind the doors of the Copthorne Tara Hotel Kensington, engineering professionals, subject matter experts and solution providers gathered for what was, to-date, one of the best attended conferences there has been.  An agenda of informative presentations, open debate and discussions was punctuated with buffet lunches and coffee breaks providing great opportunities to network and engage with the customers of tomorrow.
 
CMCA(UK) welcomed friends both old and new to their stand, discussing our range of Obsolescence management Solutions,  IIOM Accredited Training and REACH Regulations… roll-on 2021.
 
 
Three Counties Defence & Security Expo
 
A great day of engagement was enjoyed by all at 3CDSE back in July. 
Soaring temperatures welcomed delegates, guests and visitors alike to The Three Counties Defence Security Expo.
Held at the foot of Worcestershire’s picturesque Malvern Hills, this relative newcomer to the defence exhibition circuit showed no signs of stage fright, hosting an excellent show, drawing in droves of exhibitors and customers.
Our Business Development Team were on hand in The Severn Hall throughout the day, discussing a range of topics to include, NATO Codification, Obsolescence Management, REACH Regulations and Implementation and Procurement Solutions.
It was a long day but a worthy one, at what appears to be quickly becoming a firm favourite amongst exhibitors and delegates on the events calendar.

Management Team Update
 
Readers of our newsletter might be interested to learn that we’ve introduced some changes to the roles performed by our senior management team. With effect from August 2019 Glenn Hill, as Head of Technical Services, will assume responsibility for the Obsolescence Management department as well as retaining control of the Long Term Storage, testing and REACH Management capabilities. Chris Green, our former Head of Obsolescence Management Services, has now taken on the role of Head of Business Development, with Andy Davis also joining ‘the road squad’ as Senior Business Development Manager.
 
Codification Roadshow, Abbey Wood 
 
Back in May CMCA(UK) subject matter experts joined forces with their UKNCB colleagues to converge on Abbey Wood MoD, manning the stands of The Codification Roadshow.
Working their way through Neighbourhoods One to Four, Monday to Thursday, they enjoyed four busy days of interaction with various Project-Team (PT) members from across all services.
 
The Roadshow was designed to provide an opportunity for PT members to engage with CMCA(UK), the MoD’s only supplier of NATO Codification and Codification subject matter experts, to provide clarity and advice on any issues or queries relating to codification within the UK and NATO Countries.
Supported by UKNCB the event was recognised as a great success and certainly one to repeat over the coming years.
