||An early response in the event of an oil spill can help mitigate the environmental damage caused by such accidents. This article explains the functions of centres for emergency intervention integrating a proactive approach and how they should be organized for maximum effectiveness. Such centres should consist of integrated systems that include a logistical chain of support with clear responsibilities and defined areas of specialization, working as a pluridisciplinary team. They should be staffed by persons having backgrounds in particular in nautical sciences, safety engineering, biology, geology and oceanography.
