ITOPF Board Meeting
The Director attended the annual ITOPF Board Meeting on 9 November 2017 in Singapore. ITOPF is the main experts’ organisation that works with the IOPC Funds on oil pollution incidents, and delivers a range of other activities such as training and sharing information. The annual participation on ITOPF’s Board enables the IOPC Funds’ Secretariat to have direct interaction with the shipowner members of ITOPF. At this year’s meeting, the Director provided the Board with an update on the recent key discussions within the governing bodies as well as developments on current incidents involving the IOPC Funds, in particular in relation to the Agia Zoni II incident, since the owner of the tanker is an ITOPF member.
