In addition to representing the interests of shipowners and operators at bodies such as the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the International Labour Organization (ILO), the production and revision of maritime publications is one of the most important tasks that ICS undertakes on behalf of the shipping industry. Most of the publications listed in the catalogue can be ordered directly from Marisec Publications, but they can also be purchased from maritime booksellers worldwide. Many of these industry guides are an essential complement to international regulations, and are required reading by companies and seafarers involved in maritime operations. Some current editions are still published under the ‘International Shipping Federation (ISF)’ brand, although ISF has merged with ICS.
