World-Class Tanker Safety - Tanker Inspection



How do we keep Canadian waters safe from oil spills? Let’s take a look... behind the scenes.

Regular inspections are essential to keeping our waters safe—making sure tankers like this comply with Canadian and International laws and regulations.

Inspectors ensure tankers are in safe operating condition—and that every tanker in Canadian waters has a double hull. Double hulls reduce the likelihood of a spill.

The Government of Canada is increasing the overall number of inspections, and requires that...

...Canadian tankers be inspected once a year...

...and that foreign tankers be inspected on their first visit to Canada and at least once a year afterward.

More inspections and double-hull construction are just some of the ways we’re keeping our waters safe.
