EMSA adopts action plan for hazardous and noxious substances

The European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) has adopted its Action Plan for Hazardous and Noxious Substances (HNS), which provides a concise overview of existing structures for HNS pollution response at national, regional and international levels.


The adoption of the Plan will allow EMSA to strengthen existing EU preparedness and response capabilities, which is timely following the entry into force on June 14 of the OPRC-HNS Protocol.


The Action Plan can be found on EMSAs website at www.emsa.europa.eu
