Objectives

We can provide unrivalled expertise

  • To develop common and improved standards of efficacy and safety for marine fumigation.

  • To develop an international group of independent companies that would enable its members to provide the option of guaranteed fumigation to their customers, by controlling the fumigation at both load and discharge port.

  • It has been a relatively slow and difficult process to bring together the various requirements and procedures under the one banner of IMFO. We are now proud to be able to say that we can provide unrivalled expertise and know-how, together with value for money fumigation in most parts of the world.

    Whether your requirement is for an individual treatment or a group contract, just contact your local IMFO member or our head office in the UK, and we will be pleased to attend to your needs.
