IADC depends in many instances on the input of its members. To that end, several committees have been established. These include the following committees:
IADC Public Relations Committee
The committee meets four times a year in various venues and members are on-call in between for consultation. They contribute ideas for IADC to further its PR activities, including providing lecturers for IADC seminars and advising about articles for Terra et Aqua Journal, the Facts About series and other IADC publications.
IADC Safety Committee
Safety is a top priority for all IADC member companies. To safeguard employees and involved parties, IADC has established a safety committee that enables its members to share best practices amongst its members.
IADC Indexation Cost Standards Committee
A guide to cost standards for dredging equipment 2009 gives the replacement value ex-works, yard or importer in Europe on 1 January 2009 for several types of dredging equipment. Since there is no specific European index for ship building and/or hull structures available, IADC’s committee assesses the indexation annually. This is then published by CIRIA.
IADC Registered Plant Committee
The committee gathers data about the plant of all IADC members and supervises its verification.
IADC Dredging in Figures Committee
Statistics about dredging turnover are difficult to assemble and yet highly in demand.
