The SIP facilitated Life Science and Industrial Science Trailblazer (LSIS) continues to make good progress.
IfATE Manufacturing and Engineering Standards Review
Now that the pilot standards review has been completed with the Digital Route an important programme is being initiated by IfATE to review the engineering and manufacturing standards. With SIP support, LSIS is reviewing its earliest Trailblazer developed standards prior to the formal review to ensure that they are current, up to date, fit for purpose for our industries and aligned to the new IfATE policy.
The E&M review will start in October for a period of 18 months and it is expected that the Science Industry Maintenance Technician (SIMT), Science Manufacturing Technician, (SMT) and Science Manufacturing Process Operator (SMPO) will be amongst the 50 Standards under review.
