IMCA online document security update

Posted on

IMCA has made improvements to better protect guidance documents in the members-only area of its website. IMCA’s online technical library is now only available to members logged in to the members’ area of the site. As part of the process, login credentials for all IMCA website users were also reset.

New login details were issued to users on Friday 26 August, and old login details expired on Friday 9 September. If you have any questions regarding the improvements, or need assistance logging in to the site, please contact our Membership Services Group (details below).

For further details, please see the FAQ below.

Why the change?

Following a review of our compliance programme, we concluded that IMCA’s technical library should be accessible to members only.

How does the change affect me?

You will now need to use your company’s new username and password to be logged in before you can download or open any of our member-only technical guidance. Once logged in, clicking to download or open IMCA documents triggers a compliance dialogue box. Clicking to ‘accept’ the stipulated terms and conditions will initiate the download or opening of the document as usual.

When were my new login details sent?

We sent all IMCA member companies new login details on Friday 26 August by email. These details were active immediately. In a change to our previous system, there is now one login for all users at any given member company (rather than individual login details).

Individuals’ previous details became inactive on Friday 9 September.

What if I did not receive new login details?

Please contact our Membership Services Group (details below) and one of the team will be happy to provide them.

How do I login to the website?

Each company has their own company-wide login details (username and password). You can either login by:
– Using the ‘Member Log In’ button in the top right corner of the site
– Or by signing in when prompted (e.g. when you have clicked on a member-only document)

What if I forget my login details?

Please contact our Membership Services Group (details below) and one of the team will be happy to remind you of them.

What if others at my company would like to access IMCA’s documents too?

Any individual who works for an IMCA member company and is interested in IMCA documents is welcome to log in to the site to access IMCA documents using your company login.
We would however, like to add new users’ individual details to our database, so please let us know if anybody new will be logging in. This way, we can contact them to let them know if your company’s login details are subsequently updated.
Login details are only to be shared with individuals at your company who are interested in IMCA’s documents, please do not forward them to anybody outside of your company.

What if non-members wish to access IMCA documents?

Instructions for companies or organisations who are not members, but who have a legitimate reason to access our documents, will be provided and access rights decided on a case by case basis.
