Maritime New Zealand posted the latest edition of the National Marine Oil Spill Contingency Plan.
The plan sets out how Tier 3 or national level oil spill responses are run.
The different chapters and annexes of the plan are regularly reviewed and updated as required.
The National Plan is used in conjunction with the Regional Marine Oil Spill Contingency Plans, maintained by New Zealand’s 16 regional councils and territorial authorities. These plans identify sensitive sites and preferred response options for the most likely spill scenarios in each specific region, as well as what resources are held locally.
