  • Abstract:
    Title VII of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90) established the thirteen member Interagency Coordinating Committee on Oil Pollution Research (Committee). The Committee is charged with coordinating a comprehensive program of research, technology development, and demonstration among federal agencies in cooperation with industry, universities, research institutions, state governments and other countries. This responsibility includes preparation of an Oil Pollution Research and Technology Plan, which the Committee prepared and submitted to Congress in April 1992. At the same time, the Committee also provided a copy of the plan to the Marine Board of the National Research Council (Marine Board) for review and comment as required by the OPA 90. Upon review, the Marine Board recommended the plan be revised using a framework that addresses spill prevention, human factors, and the field testing/demonstration of developed response technologies. This updated version of the plan incorporates these Marine Board recommendations.
