Haikou Common Declaration of The World Congress on Maintenance
November 26th, 2008 Haikou, China

As a symbol of human wisdom and national image, equipment bears witness to human progress and showcases the world’s development. As a close friend of human, equipment and human are as dependent on each other as the jowls and the jaws. Equipment and life, equipment and family, equipment and health, equipment and emotion, equipment and wealth, equipment and harmony, equipment and culture, equipment and technology, equipment and undertaking, equipment and society, share countless ties and links, weal and woe. In another way, due to the omnipotent of modern equipment, human has been realized traveling, ranging from the five continents, four oceans, multidimensional universe, wonderful colors and splendid shows.

Meanwhile, nowadays, as advanced equipment develops rapidly, management and maintenance of it had gone beyond the original coverage. Equipment maintenance and management ensure normal operation of hi-tech equipment, and guarantee safety of life and wealth, realize undefeated and competitive enterprises. In a word, human and equipment are pacing forward shoulder by shoulder striving together. Therefore, “Science, Progress, Creativity, and Development” has become the permanent theme of the World Maintenance Community.

However, due to the great complexity of the task, different countries have seen uneven development in equipment management and maintenance. To envision the future, we still have a long way to go.
To this end, we pledge to following missions:
1) Establish some professional committees to push the progress of different maintenance fields;
2) Set up a financial institute to built a fund of the future activities;
3) Conduct a common training programs and courses to suit different maintenance training cases as the common welfare of world maintenance;
4) Contribute directly to the establishment of a set of international standards for equipment management and maintenance (KPI);
5) Help channel resources and expertise to regions and countries where equipment management and maintenance is relatively weak;
6) Improve human security, environmental protection through better maintenance, from strategy to technology;
7) Protect intellectual property in promoting technological innovation; and
8) To help the enterprises conquer the financial crises by excellent maintenance.
It is our conviction that as long as efforts are made from all countries and races bound together by our shared vision and common mission, as long as we purify our souls with humanity, we will move towards the fulfillment of our goals and our ongoing undertakings, conquering one and another summits.

Leonardo da Vinci project “EuroMaint”

EuroMaint started in December 2006 and will conclude with this proposed workshop.
EuroMaint was covering the following topics:
• Listing the required professional and general competences of engineers and managers involved in the maintenance process - International consensus on the list.
• A definition and procedure for a Personal Development Plan.
• Gathering educational materials.
• Integration of training in the European Qualification/Certification-System.
This project has been carried out by several European universities, a variety of National maintenance societies and The European Federation of National Maintenance Societies (EFNMS).
