My company adds 50' to all MDA`s, to account for sink when initiating a go-around. SOP`s also require a go-around as soon as MDA + 50' is reached, ie. no flying along at that height until the Missed Approach Point. This heightens the need for an accurate glideslope path to be flown so as to avoid unnessecary go-arounds in poor visibility.
