"A Catalyst for Change"
At the SOCP, you'll find the opportunity to conduct high-priority ship/vessel/shoreside operation improvement projects at a fraction of the cost of doing them independently. The SOCP is a collaborative organization where U.S. maritime organizations can work together to find practical solutions to common problems in ship/vessel/shoreside operations. Your membership allows you to explore new technologies using industry and government resources. SOCP is a unified voice when making recommendations to state, federal, and international regulatory organizations and a forum sharing results of onboard evaluations and opportunities to test new products and equipment.
