IISI changes name

The International Iron and Steel Institute (IISI) has announced that it has changed its name to World Steel Association (worldsteel). The name change is effective immediately. Speaking at the steel industry annual conference, Director General Ian Christmas said, “Since we were formed in 1967 the world for steel has substantially changed and so has this organisation. We are now a truly global body representing 18 of the world’s 20 largest steel companies, including six of the top 10 producers in China.” “Our new name provides a simple description of our role and clarity to our purpose. The World Steel Association is the representative body for an essential industry that takes a leadership role through our environmental, social and economic sustainability programmes.”
