Joint exhibition to mark 50 years working together
The IOPC Funds has collaborated with IMO, ITOPF and other industry organisations to produce an exhibition to mark the achievements of the international community over the past 50 years to achieve a dramatic and sustained reduction in major oil spills from ships; to establish effective systems for preparedness and response if there is an incident; and to create a comprehensive mechanism for providing compensation. This exhibition was launched at the meeting of the IMO Sub-Committee on Pollution Prevention and Response at the IMO building in London on 16 January 2017 and is expected to remain on display at IMO until July 2017. An online version of the exhibition is available here.
