The Director, José Maura, attended the Thirteenth Meeting of the Focal Points of the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for the Mediterranean Sea (REMPEC), from 11 to 13 June 2019 in Malta.

The event was attended by 19 Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention as well as a number of intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations. Mr Maura presented a document which highlighted the latest developments in the international liability and compensation regime and the work of the IOPC Funds since the last Meeting of the Focal Points in May 2017.

The event also provided a good opportunity to engage directly with Mediterranean coastal States and to learn about REMPEC's most recent activities and future goals.
