Very few countries have sufficient resources for combating oil spills and other pollution incidents on their own. Norway therefore cooperates closely with other nations on mutual assistance in the following agreements and forums:

International Maritime Organization
The IMO is the maritime organisation of the United Nations and the most important forum for international cooperation in the area of safety at sea and the prevention of pollution at sea.
IALA is an international, non-governmental, technical organisation that seeks to harmonise maritime services and infrastructure and develop international guidelines and standards.
