Experts from Panama and other countries participated in the Forum, with special mention to contributions from Jose Polimón and and Juan Carlos de Cea, President and Chairman of the Spanish National Committee on Large Dams (SPANCOLD).

In September 2010, ASEP issued the Regulatory Rules on Dam Safety, which establish regulations, obligations and technical conditions for dam owners through the life-cycle of the dam, from Design and Construction, through first filling and operation, and to final decommission of the dam.
