NEW INTERNATIONAL CONTRACTS ACCELERATE SPILL RESPONSE, WILL HELP MITIGATE ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE

BIMCO and ISCO have launched two new spill response contracts to make the task of arranging clean-up services following a spill incident significantly easier to negotiate in an emergency.

The two standard contracts are a first for spill response contractors. One is tailored for international use and the other is specifically for use in the United States and both are available free of charge from www.bimco.org and www.spillcontrol.org
