Posted: 27/11/2012 Categories: News – External Relations

The Secretariat is delighted to announce that the new IOPC Funds’ website is now fully operational.

This new, user-friendly site provides much wider and more readily accessible information, with in-depth sections on the work and structure of the Organisations, compensation and claims management, incidents and the latest news and upcoming events. There is also a section containing all IOPC Funds’ publications, including an online archive of all Annual Reports issued since 1978. Additionally, the site incorporates various interactive features, such as a map of incidents involving the IOPC Funds, with case studies and information relating to incidents dating back to the establishment of the 1971 Fund, a map displaying the membership of the IOPC Funds, a downloadable claim form and various statistical representations.

The website, iopcfunds.org is the hub of all information pertaining to the Organisations and provides access to other IOPC Funds’ services and websites, including document services, the online reporting system and the HNS Convention website.

The Secretariat is committed to providing the most accurate and up to date information to ensure Member States are kept fully informed of key developments relating to incidents and other key areas of the Organisations’ work during the periods between meetings of the governing bodies.

It is a significantly larger site than the former IOPC Funds’ website and it is the intention of the Secretariat that the site will grow further over time, with additional features already under development. The site is currently available in English only. The French and Spanish sites will, however, also be launched by the end of 2012.

Feedback on the new website would be appreciated. Please send any comments to the Secretariat at feedback@iopcfunds.org.
