National Plan for Maritime Environmental Emergencies (NatPlan)
At the Commonwealth level, the National Plan for Maritime Environmental Emergencies outlines the roles and responsibilities of states, territories and industry in managing oil spills and other marine environmental issues.
There are a number of informative planning tools used in oil spill response. These tools assist in the determining of response priorities and decision making by providing information on the behaviour of oil, sensitive environments and model predictions.
DoT's Maritime Environmental Emergency Response Team provides training including courses that award nationally-recognised units of competency delivered under auspice of Australian Maritime Safety Authority, Registered Training Organisation code 88033.
