IMCA is active globally, regionally and nationally in representing our Members to governments and regulatory bodies. We lobby for sensible, workable and effective regulations.
An important part of IMCA’s work is representation on a number of joint government-industry committees and other relevant bodies. We also work collaboratively with other trade associations in areas of common interest.
IMCA holds non-governmental observer status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO). We frequently attend IMO meetings to keep abreast of the latest developments and provide input based on Members’ combined experience and expertise.

Fuel Consumption Data Collection
Call to Action for Marine Members!
IMCA is collecting fuel consumption data from its members, to enable us to effectively lobby IMO Member States for a carbon intensity indicator (CII) which works for the offshore sector. The current CII being used by IMO is based on cargo ships which is not a suitable metric for assessing the carbon intensity of the offshore sector.
Support IMCA’s submission by submitting your fuel consumption data through a process managed by the Marine Policy & Regulatory Affairs Committee.
You can submit annual data for 2019-2022 and, using our submission templates, email to us: [email protected].
