International Maritime Federation was incorporated on 08th January 2015. Indian entrepreneurs from Crew Management Companies, Maritime Training Institutions and DGS approved Doctors joined hands to build up credible platform for exponential growth of Indian Seafarers as well as influence the opinions of all stakeholders.

We participate in the policy making for the seafarers with government bodies. We believe entrepreneurs ashore can share expertise on one platform to further the cause of Indian seafarers. Presently we are in many sub committees of DG Shipping as well as in the working group of National human Rights Commission.

We take up issues impacting our members with concerned authorities and assist them in compliance management.
