The Washington Tanker Event 2003 – “Tankers – Your Energy Link”

The Washington Tanker Event 2003 will feature presentations and participation from high ranking US Coast Guard officials, oil major executives and industry experts, with thorough analyses of markets and the regulatory regime in the wake of recent policy proposals and geopolitical instabilities. The Event will also include an industry exhibition providing delegates and visitors with an update on available products and services. INTERTANKO will make use of this annual gathering to strengthen alliances and dialogue with regulatory and market authorities.

The aftermath of the Prestige accident will be thoroughly debated, including examination of proposed rulemaking and its impacts on world wide tanker markets, coupled with insights provided by experts with first-hand knowledge. Considerable time will also be devoted to recent US and IMO developments, with particular emphasis on the Homeland Security Act, the International Ship and Port Facility Security code (ISPS), and updates on practical implications on all levels and all segments of the tanker industry.
