Background Information

Established in 1952 as one of the world's first environmental Non-Governmental Organisations, ACOPS originally concentrated on encouraging international agreements to reduce marine oil pollution. Since then, ACOPS has expanded its interests to include land-based sources of marine pollution, as well as other aspects of degradation of the coastal and marine environment. ACOPS has been granted special consultative status at the UN in 2002. Charity number 290776; Company number: 1867863.
