The Australian Control Room Network Association is a non-commercial industry association formed to support Operators of Australian control rooms. The Association members are encouraged to share ideas and experiences with the overall aim of achieving continuous improvement with the control room services delivered. The Association, through its members will facilitate discussion and interaction by means of conferences, webinars and meetings. All members of the Association are encouraged to participate and support the activities of the Association.
Over the years representatives from organisations that operate control rooms as an integral part of their business have attended an annual conference to share operational experiences and to meet with others who offer support services such as ergonomic advice, human resource management, etc. Industries represented include oil, gas, electricity, ports, air, road and rail.
At the 2016 conference, which was attended by over one hundred delegates, it was agreed to create The Australian Control Room Network Association to facilitate calibration between organisations that operate control rooms as well as with supporting industries.
This calibration will provide the means to share improvements and opportunities which will ultimately result in “best practice”. As an Association representing a significant business function we will have the profile to support the development and review of relevant Standards used in operating control rooms.
The legal entity Australian Control Room Network Association Inc was incorporated in Queensland Australia (IA57031 ) on the 23rd of June 2017 and registered with ASIC (ARBN 620 754 850) on the 9th November 2017.
