Secretariat

ICS is supported by a dedicated professional secretariat based in London. In 2019 the China Liaison Office opened.

The secretariat delivers on the strategy set out by the board. It is split into several specialist teams working closely together to engage with international organisations and members to represent the interests of the shipping industry.

At all times, secretariat staff act in compliance with the guidance on bribery and corruption and competition law, and the secretariat supports a whistleblowing strategy. Secretariat staff also serve as secretaries to the Boards, Committees, Sub-Committees and Panels.
