MIDSIS TROCS

The Maritime Integrated Decision Support Information System on Transport of Chemical Substances (MIDSIS-TROCS): http://midsis.rempec.org

The Maritime Integrated Decision Support Information System on Transport of Chemical Substances (MIDSIS-TROCS) contains response options presented in a decision-tree format, reinforced by tables, matrices and diagrams, some of which represent actual experiences at the marine incident sites. The decision-trees are based on the behaviour classification system for chemicals spilt at sea which is accepted by the IMO and other regional arrangements for combating accidental marine pollution. Other sections have been included which contain information on the behaviour of commonly transported chemicals, the compatibility of chemicals, the resistance of equipment material to chemicals and safety precautions when entering the spill sites. The chemical data gathered in this tool has been updated to reflect the developments which took place at the international level mainly concerning the classification of chemicals and their related GESAMP profiles.

Further to the recent approval of the two-year (2019-2020) Western Mediterranean Region Marine Oil & HNS Pollution Cooperation (West MOPoCo) Project co-funded by the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations of the European Commission, the Inter-regional Hazardous and Noxious Substances (HNS) Response Manual, referred in document REMPEC/WG.45/12/1, will ultimately be incorporated in the MIDSIS TROCS.
