IMCA Demystifies the American Offshore Workers Fairness Act

Published on 13 June 2022

IMCA published a detailed Information Note on 14 March 2022 on Congressionally proposed manning constraints applicable to vessels operating in support of U.S. offshore energy projects.  The proposal was passed by the House of Representatives on 29 March 2022 – the American Offshore Worker Fairness Act, Section 518 of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2022 (H.R 6865).  This measure is now pending before the U.S. Senate.

“There remains much more to comprehend regarding the potential of this proposed legislation and there are many inaccuracies related to the purported rationale for the need for enactment of this legislation,” explained IMCA’s Chief Executive, Allen Leatt. “IMCA has prepared a comprehensive fact sheet to demystify key myths regarding this proposed legislation, see the link below.

“In addition, the American Clean Power Association, the leading U.S. association representing renewable energy companies in the U.S., has recently published a publicly available germane paper on Offshore Wind and Maritime Crewing which is also included in the link below”.
