SRSOC is a leading Class 1 Ship Pollution Response Organization (SPRO) that enables ships calling in China ports to comply with the new Regulations of the People's Republic of China (PRC) on the Prevention and Control of Marine Pollution from Ships, which were implemented on 1st January 2012.
The SRSOC team is standing by to assist international ship owners / operators for compliance in all China Ports. SRSOC's commitment to environmental protection and its significant resource investment establishes SRSOC as the best equipped and most highly trained SPRO organization in the PRC.
Under the new PRC regulations, international owners and operators of vessels carrying oil or hazardous cargoes, or exceeding 10,000 gross tons, must pre-contract with an approved SPRO (Ship Pollution Response Organization) before entering a PRC port. By executing a contract with SRSOC, vessel owners and operators will comply and meet all requirements of the new China MSA (Maritime Safety Administration) Regulations.
SRSOC’s response rates have officially been accepted by International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation (ITOPF) and are now reflected in the Version 5 agreement which has been reviewed and accepted by the International Group of P&I Clubs.
SRSOC’s sister company Shanghai Resolve Maritime Consultants (SRMC) has been officially approved by China MSA to act as an authorized agent for vessel owner / operators in compliance with the PRC regulations. SRMC can now assist SRSOC clients in the few ports not covered by the SRSOC consortium truly, establishing the most comprehensive spill response coverage in China.
