Cedre remains available 24/365 to offer, authorities and industry, technical and scientific assistance either remotely, within crisis command centres or in the field. Cedre was mobilized as technical advisor after several incidents in France and abroad. Moreover, to support the affected coastal States in the response to incidents involving HNS, Cedre is identified as the European focal point of the MAR-ICE network of EMSA. Cedre is also the French national point within the ICE (Intervention in Chemical transport Emergencies) network to provide remote product information and general advice.
Cedre is able to provide information on specific incidents, products and facilities involved and to support the requester with data related to pollutants, risks, sensitivity, response techniques, methods and resources to be used.
Cedre's involvement in the MARINER project is to carry out, as well as INTECMAR, the state of the art of the existing procedures and equipment likely to be implemented in the event of maritime pollution by HNS. Cedre also made use of its strong experience in the field of HNS training to produce course materials and test them throughout a pilot workshop held at Cedre in mid-September this year.
