The NWA becomes The Workboat Association

New name, new logo to celebrate 25 years

Originally formed in 1994 to facilitate an industry input into the formulation of the ‘Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s’ Workboat Code of Practice the (NWA) has changed its name during its Silver Anniversary year to purely “The Workboat Association” in order to correctly associate with its current form, scope and objectives.

In its 25th year of providing to a growing industry’s needs, today in 2019 The Workboat Association’s current membership now incorporates workboat Owners, Operators, Stakeholders and independent Professionals from both in and outside of the UK. Remaining a not-for-profit, membership funded/ owned association, the WA’s scope in its most recent form offers to industry stakeholders who are: Working in the UK, to UK regulations, or those simply aiming to benchmark their own standards of practice against a well adopted, respected and understood level – as the Workboat Association promote.
