About the Accreditation Associations

Both accreditation schemes were formed specifically to improve the standards of oil spill response.They are non-profit making organisations with any surplus funds being used to improve the standards of service offered. The Associations offer accreditation for spills in the marine environment, ports, harbours and shorelines. Spills on inland waterways - rivers, canals, lakes, ponds, streams. Spills onto the ground spills from domestic central heating tanks, underground pipelines, road traffic accidents and spills onto the groundwater. The International Spill Accreditation Association is sponsored by SEPA, The Environment Agency, The Environment and Heritage Service and supported by the EPA.

Benefits of Accreditation to Client

Accreditation gives an assurance to the client that the competence of the contractor has been independently verified. It gives an assurance that the contractor’s compliance with local legislation and insurance arrangements have been checked. Accreditation ensures that the contractor has in place a system for carrying out site risk assessment and has adequate client liaison procedures. It gives you access to UK spill contractors to request a site visit to ensure that the work being done is cost-effective and gives you access to the UK spill contractor’s complaints procedure.
