1978

The triggering factor

The decision to create Cedre was made at the Cabinet meeting on 5th July 1978, based on the  observation, during  the Amoco Cadiz oil  spill  (16th March 1978), that the lessons learnt from the Torrey Canyon spill (1967) had been forgotten. Furthermore, the national marine pollution response system (POLMAR) lacked an organisation  dedicated  to  experimentation, capitalisation of acquired experience and operational advisory services.
