Emergency response

In 2003, nearly 40 % of Cedre's means were dedicated to providing emergency response, first and foremost to the Prestige spill, but also to the Tricolor and, in September to the Adamandas, an ore carrier whose cargo of deoxidised iron ore had begun to oxidise, requiring assistance off Reunion Island. For the Prestige, Cedre's involvement included, in particular, the management of a national slick drift prediction committee, a strong commitment for the pilot response and training team on polluted coastlines, a high level of cooperation with Spanish counterparts, updating of information on the Prestige spill on Cedre's website and the analysis of over 300 samples.
In 2003 Cedre obtained ISO 9001 "Quality management systems" certification.
