Industry partners

It’s our network that makes ICS unique.

In addition to our national members and IMO and ILO as regulators for shipping, ICS works closely with intergovernmental organisations (IGOs) and a wide range of partners listed below. These include industry associations, business, academia. This enables us to include a wide range of perspectives in both our policy and technical work – which is why ICS views are widely respected within the industry and far beyond.
