Kuwait Exercise - December 12-14 ,2017

The Marine Emergency Mutual Aid Centre (MEMAC) organized the Kuwait National Table-Top Oil Spill Exercise in cooperation with Environment Public Authority of Kuwait (EPA) during the period of December 12-14, 2017.

The Table-Top Exercise was held primarily to check the preparedness level towards any oil spill in addition to the relevancy of the National Contingency Plan with the actual facts on the ground. For this important Exercise, MEMAC introduced a scenario that would involve all the National Contingency Plan Parties to help highlight deficiencies and discrepancies in the current Kuwait National Framework to update the National Contingency Plan. This was helped by a more thorough look into the Kuwait National Law and its latest amendments along with the Regional and International Conventions and Protocols. The Exercise also focused on the Incident Command System (ICS) for its increasing importance as a crucial element to the new system in managing emergencies.
