Our members are in-house or third party ship and crew managers and related maritime companies and shipping organisations, involved in managing more than 5,000 ships and responsible for over 250,000 seafarers.
We are the only organisation dedicated to representing the ship management industry. Internationally-recognised and well-respected, we represent our members at an international level, lobbying on their behalf to ensure their views and needs are taken into account within the wider maritime community.
Our unrivalled presence within the wider maritime industry has allowed the Association to be at the forefront of several initiatives, including:
• Enclose Space Deaths
• Onboard Alarms
• Shipping KPIs
• Seafarer fatigue
• The single window system
• Paperless shipping
In our bid to ensure sustainability and quality, full members must establish, implement, and maintain a quality management system in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2000 for all activities undertaken by the organisation.
InterManager supports – and is involved in – several projects related to either management, technical, or welfare. These have included studies into fatigue, information sharing, ballast water, shipping KPIs, and communication facilities for seafarers, as well as our Adopt a Ship program, which builds on the groundwork of the Cyprus Chamber of Shipping and Cyprus Maritime Environmental Protection Association, bringing together schools, colleges, and orphanages to interact with seafarers on board ships and develop an awareness of shipping, and the maritime industry, particularly among the younger generation.
