The ISU publishes a quarterly magazine, Salvage World.
Salvage World has a very large external readership and is distributed on a worldwide basis.
No single salvage company could expect to influence decisions which are regularly considered by a wide variety of governmental and commercial parties.
It is the range and geographical spread of the membership that allow the ISU to speak, and be heard, on behalf of the world’s salvors.
A General Meeting takes place each year, to which all full members are invited.
It takes a disciplined, responsible attitude towards many of the most difficult and complex issues facing the global shipping community, including casualty response and pollution prevention.In addition, the ISU encourages, in appropriate cases, the acceptance of standard forms of guarantee which save time and expense in respect of salvage security.Communications is an important dimension of the ISU’s activities.For these reasons, it is important that the ISU maintains its position as the international focus for all issues concerned with marine salvage.In turn, this depends upon the ISU enjoying the support, by membership, of all companies with a commitment to the business of salvage. Associate Membership applications are welcomed from P&I Clubs, other insurers, law firms, ports, national response organisations, shipowners and managers, coastal local authorities, environmental organisations and others with an interest in salvage, pollution prevention and wreck removal services.
