Manawatu-Wanganui Marine Oil Spill Contingency Plan

This plan deals with oil spills in the coastal marine area under the jurisdiction of Horizons Regional Council and has been prepared to meet the requirements of the Maritime Transport Act 1994 and specifically Part 130C of the Marine Protection Rules.
It is closely aligned with the National Marine Oil Spill Contingency Plan prepared by Maritime New Zealand as well as linking closely with the operational procedures of the Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) Group Plan for the Region. It also aligns with the internal Emergency Response Manual of Horizons Regional Council.
This plan details how a Tier 2 response operation is to be undertaken and focuses on Standard Operating Procedures for marine oil spills.
