ITOPF has just published its annual Handbook for 2020/21. This contains a wealth of valuable information and guidance for those likely to be involved in spills of oil, chemicals or other substances from ships.
The new edition includes updated oil spill statistics and a revised section on pollution liability and compensation, as well as regular features on ITOPF’s services, different types of marine spills, clean-up techniques, and the fate and effects of oil in the marine environment.
Electronic version of the Handbook will shortly be sent to ITOPF Members and contacts. Hard copies are not currently available, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we hope to be able to distribute them later in the summer.
