The processes carried out at marine terminals, and the nature of some of the cargoes carried across the oceans of the world in ships, could in the event of accident cause loss of life and damage to property or the environment of catastrophic proportions. New methods must be evoloved for the identification and assessment of risk if such risk is to be eliminated. New methods of control must be developed which must be more flexible than those identified with restrictive legislation and more suited for dealing with developing situations. The general approach to these problems as they are dealt with the United Kingdom is discussed in this paper. It is hoped that the paper may contribute in some way to their solution.
