IMarEST policy statements serve to articulate various marine-related issues so that they may be easily understood. This aims to increase professional and public awareness of these issues and to help inform policy and regulation.
We address the biggest challenges facing the oceans by bringing together world-leading scientists, engineers and technologists to work collectively. Our statements look to galvanise the marine community to take action, and provide a springboard for the next generation of marine professionals.
The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology has position statements on the following issues:
Policy statements are joint efforts between the IMarEST Policy Team, the Technical Leadership Board and the IMarEST Special Interest Groups (SIGs), which are voluntary groups of experts who facilitate discussion to help advance particular issues.

Engine Room Perspectives
To better understand the challenges faced by seafarers in the installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of certain equipment types, the IMarEST is running a series of ongoing surveys to gather feedback from those who have first-hand experience. All responses are treated confidentially, and will be used to inform our technical input in discussions with regulators and other industry forums.
