Club correspondents Pandi Liquidadores have issued a Circular 39/2020 with information about the requirement of the Argentine Coast Guard for any vessel receiving bunkers at Zona Comun (off La Plata, Buenos Aires), to contract with an oil spill response organization (OSRO) on a preventive basis to guarantee a oil spill response within 60 minutes of occurrence (whether a tanker or not). Pandi Liquidadores have provided the confirmation received from the Coast Guard (in Spanish) with its free translation into English.
