Korea Elevator Safety Institute President Kim Nam-deuk held a second meeting with Ya. Sodbaatar, director of the State Specialized Inspection Agency of Mongolia, on Oct. 26 in Seoul to further bolster collaboration between the two countries in the realm of elevator technology.
During the meeting - which was part of the Korea-Mongolia Elevator Safety Technology Exchange pact the two countries signed previously - delegates from Mongolia proposed the idea of having Korea provide technology education and support in the realm of elevator safety.
Kim replied that his organization will assist the country by sending a team of experts to Mongolia to help the country develop advanced elevator safety inspection technology and an overall standard.
The Korea Elevator Safety Institute signed an agreement with the State Specialized Inspection Agency of Mongolia in February 2009 to support the country’s efforts to develop modern elevators and to participate in technology exchange. Since then, the organization has sent over experts to help amend existing regulations and provide continuous support.
Mongolia’s government is now in the process of modifying elevator safety laws and regulations based on the model in Korea.
Meanwhile, the institute has been supporting the Korean government’s efforts to expand exchange and support in the elevator technology arena across Asia, along with other countries including China and Vietnam.
