INTERTANKO U.K. Regional Manager Minerva Alfonso discussed the role that the Association plays in providing leadership to the tanker industry in ensuring the safe, environmentally sound and efficient seaborne transportation of oil, gas and chemical products. She highlighted that although significant improvements in the industry's safety and environmental performance have been achieved over the past two decades, the industry still faces many challenges ranging from the safe and responsible recycling of ships; vetting issues; issues relating to the human element; to the proliferation of conflicting regional and national regulations.


She underlined the importance of international rules and regulations, as well as the critical need to establish global standards for the industry.
