IMCA Technical Manager Joins IACS Advisory Committee

The International Marine Contractor’s (IMCA) technical manager, Mark Ford, has been unanimously endorsed by the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) to become a member of the IACS Advisory Committee (AVC).

In welcoming Mark Ford to the committee, Knut Ørbeck-Nilseen, IACS council chairman said: “We extend our warmest welcome on behalf of IACS and look forward to Mark’s positive and valuable contributions to the AVC and the further development of IACS Quality System Certification Scheme (QSCS).”

Mark Ford joined the IMCA secretariat in 2012 from Charles Taylor Consulting, where he worked as a senior surveyor and divisional director in the safety and loss prevention department. His work involved carrying out ship condition surveys prior to and during entry into P&I insurance cover, writing various technical and safety articles for the safety and loss department publications.

Mark Ford said: “My experience as a senior surveyor, ISM Lead Auditor, and my close association with IMCA’s eCMID System, have all provided highly relevant knowledge and skills for contributing to the IACS Advisory Committee’s work.”

Before coming ashore Mark Ford worked for over 25 years as a marine engineer on bulk carriers and diving support vessels, ultimately rising to the rank of chief engineer. He has worked as an engineer superintendent for a product tanker company which involved dry dockings, general repairs and the daily running of the fleet and also as a consultant marine engineer, specialising in FMEAs, exhaust gas emission studies, vessel lay-up studies and retro-fit specifications.
