The day to day administration of OCIMF is carried out by a full time Secretariat of twenty three people who may be supplemented by personnel assigned temporarily by member companies at times of peak work load.

In addition to servicing the Executive Committee, the other standing committees and sub committees, the Secretariat also attend meetings of the IMO committees and sub committees.

The outcome of each IMO meeting is reported to either the Executive committee or other standing committee as appropriate. Enquiries for information and advice are generally dealt with by the Secretariat, with the advice of the membership where necessary. Any enquiries should be directed to the Secretariat and the contact details are on the contacts page.
