NOSCA - A unique knowledgebase
NOSCA – the Norwegian Oil Spill Control Association – was established in 1992 to satisfy a common need within the industry, the oil companies and public institutions to join forces and resources in order to improve the overall knowledge base of oil spill prevention and response. The need for a joint international promotion of the Norwegian oil spill technology and products was certainly also of importance to NOSCA’s members representing the industry.
NOSCA with its over 30 active members has achieved international respect as an active player in R&D, oil spill prevention and response.
NOSCA is one of the three founding organizations of INTERSPILL in Europe and we also support and contribute to the successes of IOSC in the US and SPILLCON in Australia.
Norway is one of the few countries that has the privilege to benefit from full scale, offshore oil-on-water exercises organized annually by NOFO (Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies).
This gives NOSCA’s members a unique knowledge base for testing, understanding and improving their products and oil spill preparedness in general.

NOSCA seminar 2015
We feel that 2015 is a very special year for our industry.
Many of our colleagues and customers experience a challenging time where focus need to be changed and where, in some cases, travelling is restricted.
The NOSCA board has therefore, after long and thorough discussions, decided to postpone the annual NOSCA seminar to the year 2016.
We will do our utmost to prepare an outstanding seminar next year, and will inform you as soon as we can about the time and place.
Thank you for your understanding, and we sincerely hope to see you for the 2016 NOSCA seminar!
