In the early 1990s Canada developed its current oil spill response regime. I was
there at the beginning and for over 20 years of involvement have seen the best and
worst it has to offer. Let me help you learn from Canada’s experience!
Emergency Plans required under Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied
Petroleum Products Regulations - CEPA 1999 (SOR2008-197)
Canada Shipping Act 2001 - Shipboard Oil Spill Emergency Plans (SOPEP) Are you aware
of the regulations and standards that apply to your vessel? Is your SOPEP current?
If your vessel is involved in a spill, will your SOPEP be of any value?
