Updated IMO List of National Operational Contact Points

On 31 October 2022, the IMO updated its "List of National Operational Contact Points Responsible for the Receipt, Transmission and Processing of Urgent Reports on Incidents Involving Harmful Substances, Including Oil from Ships to Coastal States". 

The updated list may be accessed here (or by selecting "National Contacts" from the links at the bottom of the IMO homepage). The online version of the list is updated on a quarterly basis and includes a summary indicating which country has submitted changes to its information since the previous update. 

Members are reminded to ensure that SOPEPs or SMPEPs on board Members' vessels are duly updated with the current list.
