Oil Pollution Emergency Plans (OPEP)

The following framework diagram describes the process by which OSDR will handle and approve OPEPs.

Topic inspection templates have been developed for use by OSDR to assist in the assessment of OPEPs. Duty holders are requested to complete and submit the relevant template with their submission of the OPEP to OPRED.

Guidance on preparing OPEPs is included in the 'Guidance on Regulations' section of the OSDR website.
