Strengthening its policy and regulatory affairs team, the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) has appointed John Bradshaw as Policy and Regulatory Affairs Manager to lead on worldwide policy and legislative issues, with responsibility for developing and delivering the international trade association’s policy and regulatory strategy, including representing members with regulators and other third parties.
Bradshaw joined the IMCA Secretariat as one of its strong team of Technical Advisers in early Autumn 2015. This followed four years at Lloyd’s Register as Principal Technical Specialist and a career at sea. He has a strong track record as a specialist in the field of marine engines and emissions as well as an advocate of policy development in the marine industry.
“John’s background at Lloyd’s Register where he was rapporteur on a number of European Commission expert groups; and a regular attendee at IMO to support development of regulations, together his involvement with ICAS and makes him the ideal person to take on management of our policy and regulatory affairs. He will be working with Emily Comlyn our Policy and Regulatory Affairs Technical Adviser. Together they make a very strong team” explains IMCA’s Chief Executive, Allen Leatt.
