How is the Marine Shipping Industry Regulated?

Commercial marine shipping is inherently an international activity. As such, the industry requires regulation at the international level. International maritime regulations, also known as conventions, are developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

Who is Responsible for Responding to a Ship-source Oil Spill in Canada?

A ship-source oil spill is defined as a discharge of any type of oil from a commercial vessel into the marine environment. In the event of a ship-source oil spill in Canadian waters, three main players are involved in responding to and cleaning up the spill: the polluter, the contracted response organization, and the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG).
