Our Key Services


ITOPF is available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year to attend spills of oil, chemicals and other hazardous substances worldwide.

ITOPF gives advice on pollution damage caused by spills and assesses the technical merits of claims for compensation.

ITOPF is a primary source of information on accidental ship-source pollution.

ITOPF regularly advises governments and industry on the preparation of contingency plans and other matters related to accidental pollution from ships. These activities give us an opportunity to pass on messages of good practice outside the pressurised environment of a real incident.

ITOPF runs training courses and seminars worldwide where we share our technical knowledge and first-hand experiences. These are often undertaken alongside our key governmental partners or industry bodies.
