This edition of Section IV draws on the experience and lessons learned by Governments and industry in responding to marine oil pollution world-wide during the past thirty years. It builds on earlier editions, and provides a clear and concise overview of the present level of knowledge, expertise and understanding in the field of oil spill response.

 

It covers the behaviour and fate of different types of oil when spilled and the effects on marine and coastal resources, and includes new chapters on burning in situ and bioremediation measures. Guidance is provided on training, exercises and equipment maintenance and storage – information is also given on liability, compensation and cost accounting.

 

The revision of this section of the Manual on Oil Pollution was undertaken by the Oil Pollution, Preparedness, Response and Co-operation (OPRC) Working Group and approved by the Marine Environment Protection Committee of IMO.

Bibliography

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.
