The International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners (INTERCARGO) is representing the interests of quality dry cargo shipowners. INTERCARGO convened for the first time in 1980 in London and has been participating with consultative status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) since 1993.

INTERCARGO provides the forum where dry bulk shipowners, managers and operators are informed about, discuss and share concerns on key topics and regulatory challenges, especially in relation to safety, the environment and operational excellence. The Association takes forward its Members’ positions to the IMO, as well as to other shipping and international industry fora, having free and fair competition as a principle.

Founded in the late 1980s, InterManager represents ship and crew managers, as well as associated organisations, from around the world. Speaking for over 5,000 vessels and 250,000 seafarers, InterManager has a respected global representation. Its unrivalled presence within the wider maritime industry has allowed the association to be at the forefront of a number of initiatives, including:

  • Enclose Space Deaths
  • On board Alarms
  • Shipping KPIs
  • Seafarer fatigue
  • The single window system
  • Paperless shipping

InterManager sought and obtained consultative status with IMO at its 19th Assembly in November 1995. This is particularly important in view of the fact that IMO introduced its International Safety Management (ISM) Code, initially expressed in resolution A.741(18) and now incorporated into the SOLAS Convention.

The work of the Association is performed by its President, Secretary-General, IMO Representative and the Executive Committee. InterManager supports and is involved in a number of projects, all related to either management, technical or welfare. These have included studies into fatigue, information sharing, ballast water, shipping KPI’s and communication facilities for seafarers.

The Nautical Institute is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) with consultative status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Our aim is to represent seafarers’ and practical maritime professionals’ views at the highest level.

As a representative body, the Institute fulfils its role in many different ways. Membership by proven qualifications and experience helps to set standards. The technical committees ensure that professional opinion and advice is fed back to the industry’s decision making bodies.
