Interspill, the leading European oil spill conference and exhibition, has appointed IPIECA’s Rob Cox as its new Chairman, succeeding Chris Morris. Rob’s move from Steering Committee member to Chairman of Interspill 2015 comes ahead of the triennial event to be held 24 – 26 March, 2015, at the RAI conference venue in Amsterdam. As a founding member, IPIECA has been a strong supporter of Interspill and the 2015 conference. Rob’s new role accentuates both IPIECA’s commitment to the event and provides a respected source of expertise on the topic of oil spill response and preparedness.
IPIECA will attend Interspill 2015 with plans to run a session as part of the conference agenda focused on the Global Initiative (GI) in collaboration with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). The session will allow for progress updates to be given on various regional GI programmes that are encouraging industry and governments to work together to improve oil spill preparedness and response.
In addition to the conference, Interspill is offering short courses to participants on 23 March.
