Accidental water pollution: Impact of legal and statutory evolution

Cedre Information Day, 5 March 2009, Saint-Denis-La-Plaine.

Cedre’s Information Days generally address technical or response-related topics. This year, Cedre’s strategic committee were keen for us to review the legal or statutory evolutions concerning accidental water pollution.

Numerous international or national texts have altered or are soon to alter the regulations governing prevention, preparedness and response to accidental and operational pollution by oil or chemical substances, both in marine and fresh waters.

As is the custom of these Information Days, rather than focusing on the purely legal aspects, it is the practical and operational consequences of these texts that will be brought to light.
