The four priority areas where such service is sought are the Baltic Sea, the Western Approaches to the Channel, the Atlantic Coast, and the Mediterranean Sea. In the event of a large oil spill and following a request by a member state, the stand-by vessel would cease its commercial activities and commence oil spill response. (HK Law)
