An established IMS provides for the safe, effective and efficient management and deployment of resources for all types of emergency incidents. It is essential for effective pollution incident management, providing a clear command structure and well-defined roles and responsibilities within an optimal span-of-control. The IMS is intended to be staffed and operated by qualified personnel from any agenc0y and is scalable so that it can adapt organizationally based on the needs of the incident.
This Guidance document would ideally be used during the contingency planning process in conjunction with the IMO Manual on Oil Pollution, Section II - Contingency Planning and Section IV - Combating Oil Spills.
