The Maritime and Port Authority of Brunei Darussalam (MPABD) organised a National Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Co-operation (OPRC) workshop held at The Centrepoint Hotel, Gadong from May 16-18, to prepare stakeholders for and effectively respond to oil spills.


Delivered through a collaboration with the Global Initiative for Southeast Asia (GISEA) Project, an initiative under the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the workshop brought together national focal points from both private and government agencies through discussion-led sessions that enhanced participants’ understanding of the Regional Oil Spill Contingency Plan (ROSCP), with a particular focus on the mobilisation and repatriation of people, equipment and material resources in the mutual offer and acceptance of assistance.


The workshop was facilitated by marine pollution experts from ASEAN and the United Kingdom.
