Chapter Summary

The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and the International Shipping Federation (ISF) are sister organizations, each with its own mission. ICS and ISF have essentially a common membership of national shipowners associations. National shipowners associations are primarily made up of merchant fleet owners and operators of a distinct flag. ICS Committees consist of representatives, experts in their respective fields, nominated by national shipowners associations and individual shipping companies. The ICS and the ISF is financed through its membership fees and sales of publications and online training tools. The role of ICS/ISF within transnational economic governance is to preserve the UN Law of the Sea, provide security at sea for vessels and seafarers, and maintain free trade. The trends and challenges that ICS faces include atmospheric pollution prevention, ballast water management, cargo safety, classification standards and competition regulation.
