AOSD Outline

1.Introducing AOSD


With an aim to establish an international forum to promote the safe and efficient manufacturing and use of new steel drums and pails to encourage environmentally sound practices in the management of the packaging life cycle, ICDM (International Confederation of Drum Manufacturers) was founded in 1994 by the following regional associations, i.e. SEFA (Syndicat Europeen de l’Industrie des Futs en Acier), ISDI (Industrial Steel Drum Institute) and JSDA (Japan Steel Drum Association). Those three member associations are to cover the following areas;
SEFA:Europe, Africa and the Middle East
ISDI:The Americas
JSDA:Asia and Oceania


In line with the above ICDM establishment, to cover drum manufacturers in Asia and Oceanic regions, AOSD (the Association of Asia-Oceanic Steel Drum Manufacturers) was founded in 1994 at the initiative of JSDA.
3) At the ICDM Tokyo Board Meeting in May 2004, JSDA proposed to change the component member from JSDA to AOSD of which proposal was accepted by the other member associations.
