Committees

The IADC depends in many instances on the input of its members. To that end, several committees have been established. These include the following committees:

IADC Public Relations Committee

The committee meets four times a year in various venues and members are on-call in between for consultation. They contribute ideas for the IADC to further its PR activities, including providing lecturers for IADC seminars and advising about articles for Terra et Aqua Journal, the Facts About series and other IADC publications.

Safety Committee

Safety has become the number one priority amongst all IADC member companies. To safeguard employees and involved parties, the IADC established a safety committee that enables its members to share best practices amongst its members.

IADC Indexation Cost Standards Committee

A guide to cost standards for dredging equipment 2009 gives the replacement value ex-works, yard or importer in Europe on 1 January 2009 for several types of dredging equipment. Since there is no specific European index for ship building and/or hull structures available, IADC’s committee assesses the indexation annually. This is then published by CIRIA.

Registered Plant Committee
