Witherbys’ reputation for quality publications attracts industry experts to participate in working groups, ensuring technical accuracy and dependable guidance on regulatory compliance.  The working groups, led by our in-house technical advisors, editorial and graphics staff, produce publications that are accurate, relevant and concise. 

Witherbys also works in collaborative partnership with a number of key industry bodies (including BIMCO, CDI, IACS, IMarEST, the International Chamber of Shipping, OCIMF, SIGTTO and the UK Chamber of Shipping) to create specialist publications. Typically, these publications promote an enhanced understanding of the regulations, recommendations and guidelines issued by the industry body or by the IMO.
