This IMO publication (2012) provides guidance on the establishment of an incident management system (IMS) for marine pollution incidents.

An established IMS provides for the safe, effective and efficient management and deployment of resources for all types of emergency incidents. It is essential for effective pollution incident management, providing a clear command structure and well-defined roles and responsibilities within an optimal span-of-control.

The IMS is intended to be staffed and operated by qualified personnel from any agency and is scalable so that it can adapt organizationally based on the needs of the incident. This Guidance document (K581E) would ideally be used during the contingency planning process in conjunction with the IMO Manual on Oil Pollution, Section II - Contingency Planning and Section IV - Combating Oil Spills.

A​​s a specialized agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.  

In other words, its role is to create a level playing-field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.

Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. And IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
