EMSA issues the Network of Stand-by Oil Spill Response Vessels and Equipment (Handbook 2014)


EMSA handbookSince 2005, the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) has gradually built up a network of at-sea oil recovery vessels for pollution response operations covering priority areas.

In the field of marine pollution response, the ‘tiered response’ approach founded on cooperation and mutual support reflects the spirit of the International Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Cooperation, 1990 (OPRC 1990), as ratified by the majority of coastal Member States.

You can find all relevant information in the EMSA Network of Standby Oil Spill Response Vessels and equipment Handbook 2014.
