IOGP and IPIECA launch new Shoreline response programme guidance
IOGP and IPIECA have published the Shoreline response programme guidance, a technical support document that describes how to manage all the required onshore activities when dealing with an oil spill. Its guidance covers oiled shoreline assessment surveys, technical-decision making related to spill treatment options, incident monitoring, post treatment inspection, and stakeholder engagement.
Drawing on a wealth of experience responding to incidents worldwide, the guide helps all parties potentially involved to plan, prepare and be ready to implement a shoreline response programme scalable to any incident and to suitably manage the complex issues involved.
This publication builds on the Oiled shoreline assessment (SCAT) surveys and Shoreline clean-up techniques good practice guides which set out the broad principles and processes of conducting surveys of and responses to oiled or potentially oiled shorelines.
