ACOPS is a knowledge NGO that informs, advises and engages to achieve sustainable seas consistent with international law and sound science. We aspire to connect change makers, decision-takers and the public with scientific, legal and other specialists, as well as assisting those who wish to expand their professional development, in order to reach this goal.
ACOPS has permanent consultative observer status with five intergovernmental bodies: the Arctic Council, the OSPAR Convention, the International Maritime Organization, the International Seabed Authority and the London Convention and Protocol. We also attend GESAMP Annual Meetings and some of us participate to the working groups.
