International Marine Contractors Association


IMCA is the international trade association representing offshore, marine and underwater engineering companies. It was formed in April 1995 from the amalgamation of AODC (originally the International Association of Offshore Diving Contractors), founded in 1972, and DPVOA (the Dynamic Positioning Vessel Owners Association), founded in 1990.

IMCA promotes improvements in quality, health, safety, and environmental and technical standards through the publication of guidance and information notes, codes of practice, and by other appropriate means. Members also receive regular briefing notes on technical issues, regulatory developments, and news and events appropriate to their areas of activity. Homepage:
