ITOPF is on the steering committee for the Interspill 2015 Conference and Exhibition which this year focuses on the changing landscape of spill preparedness and response as E&P and shipping activities continue to move into more challenging environments, and public sensitivities to perceived spill risks increase.
ITOPF is chairing sessions and presenting a number of papers at this event:-
