This bulletin aims to make the marine community aware of the new Guidelines for the over-wintering of vessels carrying oil or NLS under Canadian Jurisdiction (TP 15295E). You may request a PDF copy of the Guidelines TP 15295E by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
These Guidelines apply to vessels carrying oil or NLS that are frozen into land-fast ice in any Canadian waters, throughout the winter (over-wintering). The aim of these Guidelines is to avoid damage to vessels, to protect the environment, and to make it easier to reactivate vessels after lay-up.
What you need to know
Transport Canada created the Guidelines TP 15295E to:
- Explain all legislative and regulatory requirements that apply to the vessel, including those of the Canada Shipping Act, 2001, the Arctic Waters Pollution Prevention Act and the Marine Liability Act.
- Outline many of the hazards and risks that over-wintering vessels may face and how to plan to overcome them.
- Provide operators and crews engaged in the over-wintering of vessels in land-fast ice with practical reminders of good practices and procedures.
