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 2019/2020 issue has been fully revised with the introduction of new graphics, expanded information on ITOPF’s technical services and a brand new section on different types of marine spills.  It also includes updated oil spill statistics and revised information on pollution liability and compensation, as well as regular features on 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 Terry Goodchild. Multiple copies are charged at £1 each, plus P&P.
