The Irish Marine Federation (IMF) is the national organisation representing both commercial and leisure sectors of the marine industry in Ireland.

The IMF is affiliated to the Irish Business and Employers Confederation (IBEC) which provides the Secretariat from its Dublin office.

IBEC has regional offices in Cork, Donegal, Galway, Limerick and Waterford and an office in Brussels, the Irish Business Bureau.

The primary aims of the Federation are:

To promote the interests of all sectors of the marine industry in Ireland and to encourage its growth and development.

To represent the interests of the industry to Government, State Agencies and European institutions, thereby influencing public policies.

To promote the image of the industry through quality awareness, public statements and the organisation of Boat Shows.

To provide advice, information and services to members in order to assist in achieving these objectives.

Membership of the Federation also gives full membership of the Small Firms Association (www.sfa.ie) who represent small firms trans-sectorally by coverage in the national press, television and radio and through the many regional meetings and seminars which take place throughout the country.

The association conducts regular surveys of business trends and publishes a bi-monthly magazine Running Your Business along with many reports on the needs of Irish business. They also provide advice and assistance on all aspects of personnel and industrial relations and specially designed training programmes aimed at small firms.

Membership of the IMF is open to all firms operating in the marine industry in Ireland, subject to the approval of the Council of the Federation.

Irish Marine Federation (IMF), Confederation House, 84/86 Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2.
