What is purpose of ISGOTT or The International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals ?

The purpose of the guide is to provide operational advice to assist personnel directly involved in tanker and terminal operations. It is emphasised that the ship’s operator should always be in a position to provide positive support, information and guidance to the master who is in charge of the day-to-day running of the ship, and that the terminal management should ensure that its concern for safe operating practices is known to the terminal personnel

This guide makes recommendations for tanker and terminal personnel on the safe carriage and handling of crude oil and petroleum products on tankers and at terminals. It was prepared originally by combining the contents of the ‘Tanker Safety Guide (Petroleum)’
