USCG – Response Plans and Significant Pollution Events

Wednesday, January 31, 2007
The US Coast Guard issued guidance on vessel and facility response plans in relation to oil spill response organization (OSRO) resource movements during significant pollution events.

This is what occurred following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The guidance is intended to regularize the process of making adjustments and obtaining necessary waivers.
