About Marine Pollution Response Service

Parties to the OPRC convention are required to take all appropriate steps to prepare for and respond to oil pollution incidents. We do this for New Zealand, on Maritime New Zealand¿s behalf.

We work to minimise the impact of oil pollution on New Zealand¿s marine environment by:

responding to regional marine- based oil spills
training other people in how to respond - such as regional council and industry representatives
running exercises to ensure people maintain their skills and are practised in using the equipment
keeping equipment on-hand for use during marine oil spills
maintaining a National Oil Spill Contingency Plan which describes how we will run a Tier 3 (national) oil spill response
working with regional councils to make sure they have regional response plans, which identify sensitive sites and likely response options for their territorial regions
providing assistance to (or receiving help from) other countries if required, for larger oil spill incidents.
