The Nautical Institute is the international representative body for maritime professionals
The Nautical Institute is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) with consultative status at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). Our aim is to represent seafarers’ and practical maritime professionals’ views at the highest level.
As a representative body, the Institute fulfils its role in many different ways. Membership by proven qualifications and experience helps to set standards. The technical committees ensure that professional opinion and advice is fed back to the industry’s decision making bodies.
Publications written by practitioners for practitioners provide the best operational guidance available and the branches encourage professional development in local areas.
