Chapter Summary

The purpose of the Permanent International Association of Navigation Congresses (PIANC) is to improve inland and maritime navigation through the advancement of technology and the dissemination of information associated with the planning, design, construction, improvement, maintenance, and operation of waterways and ports. There are several classes of membership in PIANC: Qualifying Membership, Corporate Membership, Platinum Partnership Membership, and Individual Membership. The organizational structure of PIANC is composed of the Annual General Assembly (AGA), the Council, the Executive Committee (ExCom), and the Secretariat. Each commission satisfies its role within transnational economic governance to further PIANC's strategic goals by networking with other commissions and organizations. The Inland Waterways Commission (InCom) has working groups involved in various activities such as maintenance and renovation of navigation structures and the design and sizing of movable control structures for inland waterways and harbours.
