ICOMIA’S main focus is our members. We exist to help our members thrive and grow their businesses. In particular we aim to help national marine industry associations to grow by promoting recreational boating and highlighting ways to get more people involved.

We also lobby national governments and international organisations such as the European Commission, International Maritime Organisation and United States Environmental Protection Agency in order to improve boating safety, protect the environment and promote international trade.

We directly support the development of ISO boat building and marine equipment standards to ensure high standards are met when setting the criteria for building safe boats and equipment. ICOMIA promotes boating as being fun and available for all. Growing the boating industry and making it more accessible is built in to all aspects of ICOMIA’s work.
