American Salvage Association and OMSA establish formal relationshipNews // May 16, 2008
The American Salvage Association (ASA) and the Offshore Marine Service Association (OMSA) have agreed to establish a reciprocal Affiliate Membership relationship.
OMSA represents more than 250 member companies, including about 100 firms that own and operate marine service vessels.
The American Salvage Association is the trade association promoting professionalism and improving marine casualty response in North American coastal and inland waters.
ASA has partnership agreements with the US Coast Guard (Quality Partnership Agreement), and affiliate relationships with the International Salvage Union, the North American Marine Environment Protection Association, (NAMEPA) the National Association of Marine Surveyors (NAMS), and the International Association of Diving Contractors (IADC).
“The partnership relationship with OMSA is another important step forward for the American Salvage Association,” said ASA President John A Witte, Jr. “OMSA plays a critical role in supporting the offshore marine service industry, and the professional salvage industry supports the offshore industry, so ours is a natural relationship,” he continued.
