Launch of the new Maritime Integrated Support Information System on Transport of Chemical Substances (MIDSIS-TROCS 4.0) – Apr 14, 2021

In the framework of the West MOPoCo project, REMPEC is launching an upgrade version of MIDSIS TROCS, MIDSIS TROCS 4.0. West MOPoCo, coordinated by Secrétariat Général de la Mer (SGMer), is implemented through an inter-regional effort, including participation of REMPEC, the Bonn Agreement and the Helsinki Commission (HELCOM), with the technical support of expert institutions such as ITOPF, Cedre, the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Science as well as ISPRA. The project also involves the contribution of the Information and Communication Regional Activity   Centre (INFO/RAC).

MIDSIS TROCS 4.0 decision tool targets contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention, inter-governmental and non-governmental regional and international organisations, research and funding institutions and partners. The aim of this tool is to facilitate decision making in case of Hazardous and Noxious substances (HNS) spill. In this context, the project is closely linked to the Inter regional HNS Response Manual developed by our partners.

The new MIDSIS TROCS webpage provides updated information and databases inter alia on GESAMP, Emergency Schedule, Pollution category, experts list and Accident reports. It also provides guidelines and tools to elaborate a preparedness/ response strategy in case of pollution incident. REMPEC’s team hopes you will enjoy this new platform and welcomes any suggestion for further improvement.
