Key aspects of the MAR-ICE Network

Via a dedicated single contact point, and with the use of the MAR-ICE Activation Form, national authorities can directly contact a chemical expert per e-mail/phone who can provide the following support:

 MAR-ICE level-1: Remote expert information and advice

• Information provided within 1 hour: Relevant substance-specific documentation and advice
• Information provided shortly after (case-by-case basis): Additional product-specific information and advice from a knowledgeable chemical company; Risk assessment for responders and the environment; Drift and weathering modelling results; Advice on response and recovery options.

MAR-CE level-2: Expert advice on-site

• Within 2-6 hours the requester will know if a knowledgeable expert from the chemical industry is available to travel to the requester’s country to support and advise the authorities on-site during the response operations
• Within 2-6 days, the chemical expert can travel to the command or operations centre of the requester’s country

The MAR-ICE network:

• Provides 24/7 a cost-effective and rapid information service for chemical spills,
• Provides direct access to a chemical expert to talk to, remotely or on-site at the requester’s country,
• Supports and helps the authorities with product specific information and advice in the complex decision making-process of responding to chemical emergencies at sea
