Biannual coastguard meeting goes 'virtual' for the first time

Coastguards, including those from Her Majesty’s Coastguard, who work to oversee search and rescue, pollution, salvage and traffic management have successfully moved their biannual meeting online.

It’s the first time that the Anglo French Accident Technical Group has met online and there were 20 people attending from the UK, France, the Channel Islands, Belgium and Ireland.

These biannual meetings are chaired jointly by France and the UK. As well as search and rescue, salvage, pollution and vessel traffic management, the group also looks after the Anglo-French Joint Maritime Contingency Plan for the English Channel (MANCHEPLAN), which establishes policies and procedures for incident control and management.
