Summary

The National Marine Chemical Spill Contingency Plan (ChemPlan) outlines how the combined resources of the Commonwealth,State/NT Governments, the chemical, plastics, petroleum, and shipping industries may be activated to respond to the threat posed to Australia, its people and its marine environment, by spillages of bulk or packaged dangerous goods and chemical spills from vessels. It prescribes procedures and provides information required to implement the chemical spill response provisions of the National Plan and relevant State/NT contingency plans. Under the terms of the IGA, AMSA is responsible for maintaining ChemPlan. The Plan follows the general procedures of the National Marine Oil Spill Contingency Plan taking account of the land-based chemical and hazardous materials response capabilities of fire services, industry and government authorities.
