MARPOL is the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Convention for the Prevention of pollution of the seas from vessels. 

Under MARPOL all ships are required to have a Shipboard Oil Pollution Emergency Plan, SOPEP.

SOPEP contains information on actions to be taken when there is an actual or probable discharge as a result of an incident or an accident.

All emergency plans are vessel-type specific and approved by Classification Society on behalf of the Flag Administration.

MACNALINK provides ship owners with approved SOPEP. 

OPA 90

The United States Oil Pollution Act 1990 (OPA 90) provides pro-active procedures for oil spills  in US Waters.

Under OPA, vessels are required to have a detailed Vessel Response Plan (VRP), (which is ship specific) a Qualified individual who is authorised to initiate any spill response in US Waters, a spill management team or contractor, and provide emergency response information.

MACNALINK provides the entire OPA 90 requirements.
