OCIMF has been experiencing some technical difficulties with its "ocimf.com" domain. This has resulted in delays or non-receipt of some emails sent to OCIMF on
25th / 26th November 2015. The emails affected are only those ending "ocimf.com". As there is the possibility that this technical issue may reoccur the move to the "ocimf.org" domain has been brought forward. From now on all OCIMF emails ending "ocimf.com" should be amended to "ocimf.org".

For example:- "joanna.bradley@ocimf.com" becomes "joanna.bradley@ocimf.org"

Whilst the "ocimf.com" domain will continue to operate in parallel to the "ocimf.org" for at least the next 12 months, users are strongly encouraged to use the "ocimf.org" domain.

OCIMF apologises for any inconvenience caused.

About Us

Our mission is to be the foremost authority on the safe and environmentally responsible operation of oil tankers, terminals and offshore support vessels, promoting continuous improvement in standards of design and operation.

OCIMF was formed in April 1970 in response to the growing public concern about marine pollution, particularly by oil, after the Torrey Canyon incident in 1967.

In the early 1970s, a variety of anti-pollution initiatives were starting to emerge nationally, regionally and internationally, but with little coordination.

Through OCIMF, the oil industry was able to play a stronger, coordinating role in response to these initiatives, making its professional expertise widely available through cooperation with governments and intergovernmental bodies.

OCIMF was granted consultative status at the IMO in 1971 and continues to present oil industry views at IMO meetings. Since then, its role has broadened to take account the changing maritime activities of its membership.

Its remit now covers tankers, barges, offshore support vessels and terminals and its advice extends to issues like shipping in ice and large-scale piracy, which rarely troubled the oil industry when OCIMF was first created in the 1970s.

The current membership of OCIMF comprises 94 companies worldwide.
