UKEireSpill is recognised by United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland Governments, their trade, environmental and maritime agencies as the industry body for spill and incident response and is actively engaged in assisting the drafting of relevant legislation, contingency planning, provision of advice and developing best practice.
We aim to promote our Members by organizing and participating in regional, national and international events, exhibitions and conferences for the spill industry, oil industry, government and the public, independently and in partnership. Also by maintaining a comprehensive online directory of Members’ products and services and links to their websites, through strategic relationships with related organisations and through the regular publication of the UKEireSpill magazine “Spill Alert” and information published on our web-site www.ukeirespill.org
We lobby on behalf of our Members by speaking authoritatively, and coordinating responses to relevant government and non-government consultations that may have an influence on our Members’ activities.
We share information about and amongst our Members by providing educational and networking opportunities through regular meetings, events, webinars and seminars, held across the UK and internationally, through regular Member Updates and through our web-site.
