Report an incident
To report a pollution incident involving your vessel, you should contact the National Response Center.
The National Response Center (NRC) is the sole federal point of contact for reporting oil and chemical spills.
To report a spill, contact the NRC via their toll-free number +1 800-424-8802 or complete an online spill-report form at http://www.nrc.uscg.mil. The NRC website contains additional information on reporting requirements and procedures.
For those without 800 access, please contact them at +1 202-267-2675. The NRC operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
We hope this is a helpful general guide for you and your shipmates to protect the environment while promoting a safe and efficient workplace. Remember, the actions of you and your fellow crew members can have a lasting impact—it’s critical that communication on board is clear and constant.
