Enquiries » Marine oil spill contingency plan application
Initial response to any oil spill must be oil containment and recovery by competent personnel using best practice methodology.
This Tier 1 Plan is only approved while the Tier 1 Plan holder listed operates at the specific site listed while using equipment and/or procedures documented in this plan. Operating outside Tier 1 Plan documentation parameters will result in warning notification.
Any processes, information, or procedures listed in this plan must be actioned and documented. Proof of procedures and processes will form part of the on-site audit and must be available, current, and on-site at all times.
Knowingly allowing oil to enter the coastal marine area during operations due to careless or incompetent operation will lead to immediate suspension of the plan, followed by possible revocation and prosecution.
All marine oil spill contingency plans will only be approved if there is an accompanying resource consent for the refuelling activity and proof of the structural stability of any structures used during the refuelling operation.
Note: The plan holder may not have to be the holder of the resource consent.
Minimum documentation accompanying this plan and required on site will include:
