As a Trade Association, IJUBOA offers full membership to jack up barge owners/operators at an annual cost of £4000.00 per fully certificated member. It is a membership requirement as an owner/operator that the company applying for membership should now meet the prescribed Code of Practice format as laid down by IJUBOA.
IJUBOA is moving to a position where all its full owner/operator members will without exception hold either full ISM Code covering self- propelled vessels or the IJUBOA CoP or equivalent (ISO 9001 & OHSAS 18001 with specific reference to SEP’s) covering all non -propelled vessels.
New members will now be required to confirm that ISM Certification before joining or in the event of not having ISM Code will be required to demonstrate their management ability by meeting the IJUBOA CoP.
All existing members not holding ISM Code or equivalent will now be required to meet the IJUBOA CoP. The Executive Committee will announce on the 16th April 2015 the final date when all IJUBOA members must have demonstrated their ability to meet the CoP to retain their membership to IJUBOA.
