I would urge all surveyors to read and take note of an open letter from IIMS President, Geoff Waddington. It concerns a lack of attention to professional procedures, which is concerning and, having now come to light, is getting some members into hot water. On a lighter note, Geoff came to Portchester to cut the ribbon to officially open Murrills House as our new HQ in a socially distanced ceremony.
The Report Magazine is the official publication of the International Institute of Marine Surveying.
The Institute publishes the Report Magazine four times per year in March, June, September and December. Members are invited to (and do) submit articles regularly for publication, which entitles them to CPD points too. If you wish to send an article for publication please email us.
Each issue will appeal to big ship and small craft surveyors alike. Its content is also highly relevant to P&I Clubs, vessel operators, marine insurers and others involved in the maritime sector. Each issue will be a mix of technical articles and more general features related to the profession of marine surveying. Some of this editorial content is supplied by members and the rest is specially commissioned by the editor.
