New OSRO requirement for bunkering in Argentina

Tuesday, 29 December 2020 | 01:00

Members are advised to be aware of the new arrangements for any vessel taking bunkers at Zona Comun.

The Club’s local representative in Buenos Aires, Pandi Liquidadores, have advised that the Argentinean Coast Guard now requires all vessels bunkering at Zona Comun (off La Plata, within 12 miles from the coast) to have arrangements in place with an OSRO for response to any oil spillage within 60 minutes of occurrence. A copy of their circular is attached.

This appears to be a change in approach and Members are advised to be aware of the need to make these arrangements in good time for any vessel taking bunkers in this area.
