Chapter Summary

Ships have experienced distress situations since the earliest days of the shipping industry. From the point of view of a port, the acceptance of a ship in distress into the port is not straightforward; many interests, such as environmental, economic and safety concerns are involved in reaching a decision. Some important questions for the port to consider in such situation include: who decides if a port has to accept a ship, what are the costs incurred by a port, and is there any compensation to a port accepting a ship in distress. This chapter addresses these questions from the point of view of the port. It examines general considerations about how the port environmental management system should reflect the fact that a port sometimes becomes a place of refuge.
