UN's IMO gives NGO Nautical Institute role in regulatory compliance


The Nautical Institute (NI) the London-based NGO concerned with compliance of maritime rules from personal seafaring qualifications to environmental regulatory enforcement, has been given an unspecified role by the UN's International Maritime Organisation (IMO).
NI has signed a memorandum of understanding under which the NI will "support the IMO in helping developing countries to meet international maritime standards" though the ways and means of doing this were not specified.
"The NI has agreed to lend its expertise in professional development as part of the IMO's Integrated Technical Cooperation Programme (ITCP) which seeks to build the capacity of Member States in complying with maritime safety, security and marine environment protection laws and standards," said the NI press release.
"Activities undertaken as part of the ITCP may include: seminars, workshops and training courses, needs assessment advisory missions, mentoring, twinning, secondment and exchange programmes, as well as professional leadership development," it said.
Said NI chief executive John Lloyd: "Our worldwide network of branches means the NI is ideally placed to support the work of the ITCP at the local level, particularly through the provision of volunteer experts."
