IMCA speaking on diving and environmental sustainability at NUI in Bergen

The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) will be updating delegates at The Bergen International Diving Seminar, taking place 9-10 November on diving activities and on fulfilling environmental sustainability expectations. 

On Day 1, Bryan McGlinchy, IMCA’s Diving Manager will be talking about the changes and expansion of the IMCA diving technical team and explaining the ongoing technical support to members as well as describing progress by the association since 2018 (when the last event was held). This embraces the revision work on the DESIGN suite of documents, the development of and the introduction of Accredited Diving System Inspector (ADSI) scheme and the work on the revision of the IMO Diving System Code, together with the routine work of revising IMCA’s library of diving guidance.

Peter Sieniewicz
Technical Adviser – Diving, Peter Sieniewicz, will then speak about the introduction of the IMCA Diving Supervisor CPD System and potential spin-offs together with the launch of the certification verification portal. The duo will close by discussing ‘Where Next? IMCA’s diving projects for the future’.

Erik Bergh, Group HSEQS at DeepOcean and a member of IMCA’s Environmental Sustainability Committee will be speaking on Day 2 about fulfilling environmental sustainability expectations and talking delegates through IMCA’s milestone publication of the Recommended Code of Practice on Environmental Sustainability. The Code, published in May 2021, was developed by its Members through IMCA’s committee governance structure and sets expectations for the marine contracting industry in managing key environmental and climate topics associated with all elements of offshore marine construction including diving.
