ITOPF Handbook

First produced in 1997, the ITOPF Handbook contains a wealth of valuable information and guidance for those likely to be involved in preparing for or responding to spills of oil and chemicals from ships. The 2020/2021 issue includes updated oil spill statistics and revised information on pollution liability and compensation, as well as regular features on ITOPF's services, pollutants in the marine environment, clean-up techniques and the fate and effects of oil. Copies of the ITOPF Handbook are available free of charge to ITOPF Members and Associates, as well as to closely related groups. Single copies are also available to others on request - contact Jayne Foster. Multiple copies are charged at £1 each, plus P&P. (Hard copies of the latest Handbook should be available later in the summer).
