West MOPoCo project update

As part of the Western Mediterranean Region Marine Oil and HNS Pollution Cooperation (West MOPoCo) project, CEDRE, Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale (ISPRA) and ITOPF presented the first draft of the inter-regional “Marine HNS Response Manual” to HELCOM and its contracting parties during the HELCOM Response Working Group meeting in Vejle, Denmark, on 26th – 27th  February 2020.

The Manual will provide operational guidelines to prepare for and respond to maritime incidents involving HNS, taking into account regional aspects of the Baltic, North Sea and Mediterranean Sea.

The Manual will also be presented at the Bonn Agreement Working Group on Operational, Technical and Scientific Questions Concerning Counter Pollution Activities  (OTSOPA) Meeting in May and to REMPEC correspondents in the Mediterranean to ensure the Manual benefits from the experiences gained in all three regions.
