In accordance with Article III of the Protocol concerning Regional Co-operation in Combating Pollution by Oil and other Harmful Substances in Case of Emergency, the Marine Emergency Mutual Aid Centre (MEMAC) was established in 1982. The main objectives of MEMAC are: to strengthen the capacities of the Contracting States and to facilitate co-operation among them in order to combat pollution by oil and other harmful substances in cases of marine emergencies; and to assist Contracting States, which so request, in the development of their own national capabilities to combat pollution by oil and other harmful substances and to co-ordinate and facilitate information exchange, technological co-operation and training. The permanent headquarters of MEMAC are located in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The Regional Organization for the Protection of the Marine Environment (ROPME) has been initially established in 1979 as a result of the Article XVI of the Kuwait Regional Convention for Cooperation on the Protection of the Marine Environment from Pollution which agreed to be signed by the eight Member States after the Regional Conference of Plenipotentiaries on the Protection and Development of the Marine Environment and the Coastal Areas in Kuwait during 15-23 April 1978.
