IMCA and industry group lobbying IMO on behalf of offshore workers

Posted on

IMCA is playing a key role in an industry group lobbying the IMO to support a recommendation for Governments and national authorities to facilitate the movement of offshore energy sector personnel during the COVID-19 pandemic.

An industry group comprising IADC, IAGC, IMCA, IOGP and ISOA, having gained initial approval from IMO, has now formally written to the IMO Secretary-General to gain recognition of offshore energy sector personnel as key workers alongside seafarers and marine personnel. If approved, the IMO Recommendation should facilitate easier movement during mobilisation and demobilisation for crew changes.
