National Plan for Maritime Environmental Emergencies
The National Plan is a national integrated Government and industry organisational framework enabling effective response to marine pollution incidents and maritime casualties. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) manages the National Plan, working with State/Northern Territory (NT) governments, the shipping, ports, oil, salvage, exploration and chemical industries, and emergency services to maximise Australia's marine pollution response capability. The National Plan Strategic Co-ordination Committee (NPSCC) provides strategic management of the National Plan while three technical groups handle operational functions.
