Management while dealing with all decision making, gets governed by external environments and shapes its policies accordingly.
Management has to deal with many matters keeping external environment in mind. Its main concern is Bulk Carrier design and safety and this means that the importance attached to the safety of the ships is the main theme of the organisation. It has a technical committee called CASTEC, which meets twice a year to discuss technical matters, and deal with other connected issues. Bulk carrier design and safety had been of paramount importance and in late 1980s after some of them were lost and immediate programme had to be adapted with changes in the SOLAS Regulations and IACS rules. The main difference came with the introduction of new hull that would avoid considerable amount of damage and survive maximum amount of impact. IMO initiated a number of safety assessment studies, and the findings also had a number of recommendations and potential rules by December 2002, the SOLAS amendments were accepted by IMO, including the introduction of Double Skin Bulk carriers.
Intercargo always works with close contact with IACS and the target had been designing and executing useful, safe, efficient and environmentally friendly sleek streamlined bulk carriers. ...

Port State Control rules are not same everywhere. European port rules do not apply in United States and most of these rules are according to the regions they are in.
Intercargo is worried about mediocre shipping practices and hence, is in favour of PSC inspections. This leaves the organisation making compulsory rules for members and others to complete the reporting forms and inspection forms. At regular intervals, organisation publishes the news, drawbacks, its concerns and the need for further regulations. Even the inspectors who have to check that vessels come under International Ship and Port facility security code (ISPSE) come under the PSC rules. Intercargo makes it a point to find out about the detained ships of members and makes enquiries about the causes of detention. Through its database, it publishes the names of the members often and details about the detained
