We have been working with web site designers ‘BlueBox Creative’ to create this new website, which will have much more input both from the Secretary and Members and will be updated on a more frequent basis.
There will be both NWA and Members’ News sections as well as tabs for site visitors to find out more about the Association and Members’ activities. There will be an expanded, more accessible ‘Members Area’ where we can upload pertinent information on a variety of current topics including Training, Towage Endorsements, the Brown Code revision and the Maritime Labour Convention as it affects your vessels.
On June 15th, the NWA will be hosting a forum entitled “Towage: Reducing the Risks – Raising the Standards” in the Upper Deck Conference Room, from 10:30 – 13:30. Members are strongly encouraged to join – but all are welcome.
Following public consultation, the MCA has now published an updated version of the High Speed – Offshore Service Craft Code for vessels under 500 tonnes.
