20 SEA-PT Ltd. SEAPT and Major Emergency Framework SEAPT is NOT a blue light response. Oil pollution response is secondary to Safety of life and securing of incident site. Pollution response will activate when safe to do so. SEAPT works under different legislation – Oil Pollution Acts and OPRC.

21 SEA-PT Ltd. OPRC provides a global framework for International Co- operation in combatting major incidents or threats of marine pollution. Parties, of which Ireland is one, are required to establish measures for dealing with pollution incidents, either nationally or in co-operation with other countries. Training and exercises are a compulsory part of OPRC and courses are organised locally, nationally and internationally. These training courses set out a blueprint for setting up response centres recognised internationally and differ from response set ups formed under Local Authority emergency plans.
