The theme of this issue, Future Spill, has to be a reflection of the fact that in 2012, serious oil spills in the marine environment were effectively nil, on the basis of spills of more than 7 tons.

The sharp reduction in marine accidents reflects substantial work in prevention via changes in laws, conventions, training, ship construction, just to name a few.
