Membership Categories

Full Members

Full members are those that own and operate Jack-up barges, click here to see our current full members.

Last year IJUBOA introduced a new Gold Standard Tiering System for our Full Member companies.

IJUBOA's Gold Standard audit promotes recognised quality, health, safety, and environmental (QHSE) management and best practice within the industry. To comply with The IJUBOA Code of Practice, each Company has to demonstrate suitably managed QHSE Management System Standards. This involves an audit on company procedures, how the business operates, the management team, emergency response and much more. This is something that in turn, can be promoted to end-clients to provide confidence and assurance in their chosen vessel operator. Our team of experts are on-hand every step of the way to provide guidance and support throughout this audit.
