REG Conference: 'A milestone in improving safety'

The conference which gives all Red Ensign Group members the opportunity to share best practice and discuss maritime matters of interest to all is marking its 30th anniversary this year.

It will be held in June and there will be representatives from right across the group attending the conference which this year is being hosted by the Bailiwick of Guernsey.

Sir Alan Massey who co-chairs the event along with Chad Murray representing Guernsey as the host said: 'The REG conference is an annual milestone on its road to continuously improving the safety of British shipping. We use it to challenge each other, agree on policies, and make meaningful decisions.  It works because the debates are honest, the outcomes are binding on all of us, and we trust each other. It matters because that kind of honesty and trust only exists where all family members can get around the same table and only the REG Conference makes that happen.'
