IMCA Demystifies the American Offshore Workers Fairness Act

The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) published a detailed Information Note on March 14, 2022, on Congressionally proposed manning constraints applicable to vessels operating in support of U.S. offshore energy projects.

The proposal was passed by the House of Representatives on 29 March 2022 - the American Offshore Worker Fairness Act, Section 518 of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2022 (H.R 6865). This measure is now pending before the U.S. Senate.
