Organisations, Processes and Documentation


The maritime carriage of cargoes is governed by not only a set of laws and regulations, but is also overseen and monitored by several international mari - time organisations, although none of the organisations detailed in this section are directly responsible for the global administration of marine cargo manage - ment. Each organisation touches upon the issue as part of its overall remit, but does not concentrate upon the subject as its main function.
