Marine Technology Sector

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description The Office of Technical Assistance with the help of a contractor - Marine and Oceanographic Technology Network is researching and collecting data pertaining to sub-sectors within the Marine Technology industry and regulatory issues that affect the industry.

On March 22, 2006, OTA convened a meeting for companies in the marine technology industry sector to discuss regulatory barriers for this industry. This forum was intended for owners and staff members that are directly involved with the day-to-day facility operations for businesses that use toxic chemicals or hazardous substances in the manufacture of marine or oceanographic equipment or are produced as a byproduct of the manufacturing process.

The forum provided companies with information on how to maintain their competitive position in international markets while avoiding or minimizing the impact of new changes in the global regulatory environment. Companies interacted with state experts who discussed several programs and options that can minimize a company's exposure and assist companies with developing plans to meet these new challenges.
