Our NGO Work

Over many decades, ICHCA has played a significant role in ensuring that the voice of the cargo handling industry is represented in the development of new legislation and regulatory guidelines.

ICHCA’s privileged NGO status at IMO, ILO, ISO and other key UN agencies allows us to monitor, contribute to, and influence the development of regulations and guidelines that impact cargo handling and movement worldwide.

ICHCA Member Delegations to IMO

ICHCA’s NGO work includes organising member delegations to attend IMO and other meetings, taking part in expert correspondent and working groups; and reporting back to members and the industry at large on the progress of new and amended legislation. Members are welcome to join one of our delegations and/or take part in supporting working and correspondence groups.
