The Alaska Maritime Prevention and Response Network

The non-profit Alaska Maritime Prevention and Response Network was established in 2011 to provide spill response and prevention measures that most cost effectively meet the environmental protection objectives of state and federal regulations. To that end, the Network has served as the submitter and implementing organization of the Alternative Planning Criteria (APC) for tank vessels operating in Western Alaska. The Coast Guard approved Tanker APC that has been in place since May 2012 provides a suite of prevention and response measures and capabilities tailored for a majority of waters in Western Alaska where full compliance with the Coast Guard oil spill response equipment requirements cannot be met. The Network has submitted a similar APC for nontank vessels (NTV) to meet the new NTV oil pollution prevention regulations that go into effect on January 30th, 2014.

Information on the various APCs and spill response and prevention measures undertaken by the Network is provided on this web site along with enrollment forms.
