Lifeboat User Group

INTERTANKO and INTERCARGO have established a "Lifeboat User Group" together with ILAMA (International Life-saving Appliance Manufacturers' Association).


The main aim with the "Lifeboat User Group" is to facilitate a forum where end users of lifeboats and associated equipment can provide manufacturers with feedback in order for the manufacturers to improve their equipment.


Therefore, constructive feedback covering all aspects of the lifeboat concept, design, handling, maintenance or location would be most welcome.


INTERTANKO guarantees that the sender's personal details will under no circumstances be revealed.


Please send your feedback to the following email address:



INTERTANKO urges all members to inform their crews, officers, Safety Managers and relevant personnel of this possibility to air their concerns about lifeboats and to share their experiences in order to provide the forum with the feedback necessary for manufacturers to improve their equipment.
