A Donjon-SMIT client has received the first Tank Vessel Response Plan (TVRP) Salvage and Marine Firefighting (SMFF) Update Approval issued by the U.S. Coast Guard under the new SMFF regulations.
The SMFF regulations, effective as of February 22, 2011, required that plan-holders revise their TVRPs with numerous new salvage and marine firefighting response procedures to be supported by extensive additional contracted response resources. The rules also required documentary evidence of compliance, including an SMFF Contract and Funding Agreement and Vessel Pre-fire Plans.
Throughout the TVRP update revision and review process, Donjon-SMIT worked in close cooperation with the U.S. Coast Guard to ensure that all documentation submitted on behalf of Donjon-SMIT clients would meet U.S. Coast Guard standards and expectations.
Interested tank vessel owners/operators, as well as other parties, should contact Donjon-SMIT at 1-703/299-0081 or visit www.donjon-smit.com. If non-tank vessel owners or operators are interested in reviewing the program, a summary will be provided upon request.
