The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) is a leading international trade association for the marine contracting industry. It is a not for profit organisation with members representing the majority of worldwide marine contractors in the oil and gas and renewable energy industries. IMCA was formed by the merger of the Association of Offshore Diving Contractors (AODC) with the Dynamically Positioned Vessel Owners Association (DPVOA) in 1995.
IMCA represents over 800 member organisations in over 60 countries and its mission it to improve performance in the marine contracting industry by championing better regulation and delivering good practice and technical guidance to enhance operational integrity.
IMCA operates five geographic regional sections (in Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe & Africa, Middle East & India and South America) with a full-time secretariat in London that organises and manages the various regional and technical committees which form the principal means to achieve its mission. The extensive committee structure consists of elected member representatives who are expert in their field of operation.
As a trade association, IMCA is required to comply with international competition law and represents the industry on national and international forums.
