THE WSMC PLAN WITH MSRC

Starting in January 1, 2014, the WSMC Plan will provide coverage utilizing MSRC for primary spill response resources. These resources provide the WSMC member with coverage by a plan with superior response capability. All for the same cost of compliance.

Benefits for WSMC members:

  • Compared to the NRC plan, the WSMC Plan with MSRC provides over:
    2.5 times the number of oil skimming vessels,
    3 times the amount of oil skimming capacity,
    2 times the amount of oil containment boom, and
    2.5 times the amount of recovered oil storage.
  • WSMC coverage with MSRC resources will be obtained through simply enrolling with WSMC.
  • A vessel may have either MSRC or NRC for their federal OSRO coverage and still enroll in WSMC.
  • The WSMC member need not be an MPA/MSRC member to obtain WSMC coverage.
  • MPA members that do enroll with WSMC will get a credit on their MPA national dues.
