Paper presented at The International Oil Spill Conference 1999, 7-12 March 1999, Seattle, USA
To assist shipowners comply with their requirements under the international conventions International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation (ITOPF) has produced a series of Country Profiles. These documents are intended to provide a greater overall understanding of oil spill response and state of preparedness nationally, and to promote cooperation between shipowners and the various government and private bodies involved in such matters. The Profiles, available to all via the Internet, cover approximately 160 maritime nations and allow users to obtain a quick snapshot of national response arrangements.
