While the environmental priority for all tanker operations is the prevention of oil spills, it is recognized that marine spills are a factor for which management must plan. This report describes the elements of the contingency planning process and stresses the importance of cooperative activity between industry and government.

This edition updates the 1991 report in the light of lessons learnt from oil spills through the 1990s. It also takes into account the effect of increasing ratification, amongst maritime nations, of the International Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Cooperation 1990 (the OPRC Convention).

Available in English, French, Spanish and Russian online; also available in Japanese.
