TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT OF VESSELS CARRYING HAZARDOUS CARGOES IN PORT AREAS

The emergence of specialist ships created an equally special need for a new port facilities. This in turn created a need for a completely new approach and attitude by ports, who have the statutory responsibility for safety within their jurisdiction. Judging by comments made at many conferences few ports (if any in some delegates' views) have achieved this. In the absence of national regulations, UK ports have been forced into a go it alone situation resulting in a miscellany of requirements to be met. In this paper the author shows how one port, the Tees, has in facing up to one area of responsibility for safety endeavoured to develop a traffic management system to meet the growing need of the industry in a responsible and sensible way and in so doing has recognised the expertise that industry has and can offer.
