The International Council of Marine Industry Associations - ICOMIA - is the international trade association representing the global marine industry since 1966. ICOMIA brings together marine industry associations from across the world in one global organisation and represents them at an international level, presenting a strong and united voice when dealing with issues challenging the industry.

Earlier this month the Croatian Boating Industry Association (CBIA) hosted the ICOMIA/IFBSO Congress in Split. A hugely successful event saw engaging discussions among members, great networking events and the recognition of key figures in ICOMIA recognized as honorary members.


The International Maritime Organisation (IMO), at its Marine Environment Protection Committee meeting held from 13-17 May rejected a proposal submitted by Turkey and ICOMIA that sought to mitigate the impact caused by the Tier III regulation.
