Posted on: 13 January 2020

The United Kingdom, represented by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency, has been re-elected to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Council under Category A: ‘10 States with the largest interest in providing international shipping services’.

Katy Ware, MCA Director of Maritime Safety and Standards & head of the UK Ship Register,  who has been the Permanent Representative to the IMO since 2011, says it is important for the UK to take part in maritime matters at the highest international level.

Her role will be to continue to coordinate and negotiate all maritime matters between other Governmental Departments, the European Union and the IMO.

‘The UK continues to be an industry leader in maritime regulation and welfare. It’s a great honour both to be able to represent that work at the IMO and also to play a part in such a vital organisation,’ said Katy, who also chairs the Red Ensign Group conference and liaises between its members and the IMO on regulatory and other matters.
