The UK Chamber of Shipping is delighted to announce Oil Spill Response Limited as the latest Associate member to join the Chamber.

The Chamber is the voice of the UK shipping industry which contributes nearly £20bn a year to the UK economy and supports over 180,000 jobs across the country. Oil Spill Response Limited joins 190 other companies as members of the Chamber.

Commenting on their membership, Oil Spill Response’s Salvage & Shipping Engagement Manager Steve Storey said:

"Our decision to join the UK Chamber of Shipping is a demonstration of our commitment to the shipping industry – to increase engagement and ensure our services reflect the needs of our shipping and marine service members.  In recent months we have witnessed increased interest from businesses in this sector, driven by shifting appetites toward spill-related risk. As a result, we are now working with a growing number of shipping and marine service operators to develop bespoke preparedness plans, provide training and offer an immediate response capability should an incident ever occur. Our new Shipping Associate Membership provides a global, high quality and affordable response service which will be of real interest to the industry's most proactive players."

Welcoming Oil Spill Response Limited to the Chamber, Head of Membership Tony Jerome said:

“We are delighted to have Oil Spill Response as a member of the UK Chamber of Shipping. Chamber membership will give Oil Spill Response the opportunity to promote their services and work closely with our Ship Owning members. In return the organisation has a company which offers advice and support should an incident occur and immediate response required. This is a great relationship that will only strengthen the UK Chamber of Shipping as an organisation.”
