Information System Updates

The First NOWPAP Forum Meeting on Marine Pollution Preparedness and Response, which was held in July 1997 in Toyama, Japan, agreed on the utility of an information system on equipment and experts. Since then, relevant information system in the NOWPAP region was collected and continuously updated. Following the establishment of MERRAC in 2000, MERRAC will be keeping the Regional Information System up-to-date as one of Routine Tasks.

At present, the System is made up of two parts: Equipment and Experts. The Equipment part includes the detail inventories of all the response equipment owned by the NOWPAP member States, including oil recovery boat, oil recovery system, oil booms, aircraft, oil transfer pump, beach cleaner, dispersants, sorbents, etc. The Experts part includes the list of institutions and experts related to the marine pollution preparedness and response in the NOWPAP region.
