In an effort to identify gaps in the current seafarer COVID-19 vaccination process, the International Chamber of Shipping released a circular requesting Shipping companies to participate in a survey.
amely, this data is being requested on behalf of ICS, BIMCO, CLIA, ECSA, ICMA, IMCA, IMEC, IMHA, INTERCARGO, InterManager, INTERTANKO, ISOA, ITF and WSC.
We are seeking input into the vaccination of seafarers. At present, information available is limited which hinders lobbying efforts as the industry is currently unaware of where significant gaps exist. To aid this process, we are undertaking a concerted and joint effort to gather as much information as possible from the questionnaire below.
What is more, once information is collected, gaps and issues highlighted will be targeted. Each company is requested to complete the survey once and return the information by the end of June 2021.
Concluding, in light of the situation, a further exercise will be conducted later in the year to see how much progress has been made.
