INTERTANKO membership entitles Members and Associate Members to expert advice on charter party questions, international regulations, port information as well as any other issue related to the tanker industry. Any proposals from Members and Associate Members to analyse specific issues or to present to IMO, National Authorities, or other organisations, will be dealt with seriously by the INTERTANKO secretariat. INTERTANKO's Committees continually follow up documentary issues, technical and regulatory questions, insurance and Worldscale matters, which have been initiated by our membership.
