Description: The National Oil Spill Disaster Contingency Plan or NOS-DCP for short, together with the allocation of functional responsibilities to the various Ministries and Departments of the Government of India for oil spill response in the maritime zones of India was approved by a Committee of Secretaries to the Government of India on 04 November 1993.
The NOS-DCP was originally promulgated in July 1996 and subsequently updated in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002 and 2006 to include additional information.
This 2014 edition of the NOS-DCP has been completely revised to reflect current international norms and best practices, key relevant national regulations, experience gained since publication of the first edition in July 1996 and valuable inputs received from stakeholders to the national plan as part of the process of revision.
The NOS-DCP was originally designed for responding to oil spill disasters in Indian waters. However, in view of India being in the process of acceding to the OPRC-HNS Protocol of 2000, this 2014 edition of the NOS-DCP has been revised in a manner such as to facilitate national preparedness and response to HNS incidents also and thereby fulfil India’s obligation to have in place a national plan to respond to HNS incidents, as a State party to the OPRC-HNS Protocol.
By an Office Memorandum of the Ministry of Defence dated 07 March 1986 and further, by amendment to the Government of India (Allocation of Business) Rules, 1961vide Gazette notification dated 12 December 2002, the Indian Coast Guard has been designated as the Central Coordinating Authority for combating oil spills in Indian waters and undertaking oil spill prevention and control.
