Officials from Malaysia and other states in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) have participated in an International Maritime Organization (IMO) oil spill contingency planning workshop held at Pulau Indah, Klang on Monday (19 to 21 August).
The workshop was carried out under IMO’s Integrated Technical Cooperation Programme and hosted by the Government of Malaysia and the Marine Department of Malaysia, at the Maritime Transport Training Institute, under the framework of the Global Initiative project for South East Asia (GI SEA), a joint project with the oil and gas industry (ipieca).
It supports the implementation of IMO’s Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Co-operation (the OPRC 90 Convention).
“The Regional Oil Spill Contingency Plan provides for a mechanism whereby ASEAN Member States can request for and provide mutual assistance in response to any oil spills,” said IMO.
“It also ensures a common understanding to enable the effective integration between the affected and assisting ASEAN Member States, in the event of incidents involving oil spills.”
