How we represent members at the International Maritime Organization

ICOMIA and the IMO logosBritish Marine is a member of the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA), which holds a consultative seat at the International Maritime Organization (IMO). ICOMIA has a representative who attends IMO meetings on our behalf and reports on issues that could affect the leisure, superyacht and small commercial marine industries.

The high level IMO committee meetings attended includes the Marine Environmental Protection Committee, Maritime Safety Committee and their respective sub-committees. 

Following each meeting, the ICOMIA representative produces a comprehensive report on the discussion and highlights areas of concern for members of British Marine and the other global marine industry associations represented by ICOMIA.
