CIMA – Consortium of Indonesian Manning Agencies
The Code is symbolized the importance of ethics in conducting the business of Manning Agencies. Members need to rely on each other and, in turn, on their Principals (Owners, Operators, or Charterers) for contracts verbally expressed and subsequently confirmed in writing. Ethical conduct is regarded by CIMA as essential.
Following are the basic tenets that must be obeyed by all members:
Certain practices that are considered unacceptable among CIMA members:

CIMA has arrangements for investigating disputes between members, and between members and non-members, which arise from breach of these basic principles or the employment of unacceptable practices and market ethics generally. Members are encouraged to bring such instances to the attention of CIMA in writing so that they can be investigated.
