    logo11 Salvage and marine firefighting

    In the July 2017 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Salvage and marine firefighting". The article discusses extended efforts to develop a regulatory scheme under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90) to address salvage and marine firefighting requirements and standards. The article suggests that there is still room of improvement, particularly with respect to who can best determine the adequacy of a resource provider and how planned response times are calculated.
