Lars Robert Pedersen has joined the Committee as a BIMCO representative replacing Mr. Lund.
Lars Robert Pedersen is a former Director of Regulatory Affairs in Maersk Maritime Technology at A.P. Moller-Maersk Group in Copenhagen. Gradually he became increasingly involved with regulatory work with special focus on IMO and in 2006 formed a new department tasked with managing A.P. Moller - Maersk's handling of regulatory challenges to its technical management operations. Specifically, Lars Robert has been involved in revising MARPOL Annex VI and development of the Energy Efficiency Design Index.
In early 2010 he joined BIMCO as Deputy Secretary General, responsible for consolidating BIMCO's Industry Affairs activities involving political and regulatory developments at international, regional and national levels.
We are pleased to have him as a new Committee member and hope that he will bring additional expertise to the Committee.
