Notification of acute pollution

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) and the Norwegian Pollution Control Authority (SFT) have issued identical letters informing the operating companies on the Norwegian shelf of their obligation to inform and the authorities' roles and responsibilities in situations that have led to, or may lead to, acute pollution.


The purpose of this letter is to clarify key issues related to:

  • The division of responsibilities between the SFT, PSA and the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) in the event of hazard and accident situations that have led to, or may lead to, acute pollution on the shelf.
  • Interpretation of requirement for notification of acute pollution and danger of acute pollution.
