IMO has produced these Guidelines to help Administrations and shipowners meet the MARPOL requirements for SMPEP and SOPEP.

Regulation 37 of Annex I of MARPOL, as amended, requires that oil tankers of 150 gross tonnage or more and all ships of 400 gross tonnage or more carry an approved Shipboard Oil Pollution Emergency Plan (SOPEP). The International Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Co-operation (OPRC), 1990, also requires such a plan for certain ships.

Regulation 17 of Annex II of MARPOL, as amended, makes similar stipulations for all ships of 150 gross tonnage and above carrying noxious liquid substances in bulk: they are required to carry on board an approved marine pollution emergency plan for noxious liquid substances. The latter should be combined with a SOPEP, since most of their contents are the same and the combined plan is more practical than two separate ones in case of an emergency.

To make it clear that the plan is a combined one, it should be referred to as a Shipboard Marine Pollution Emergency Plan (SMPEP).

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.
