Despite the increased focus on maritime safety, the risk of accidental oil spills remains a cause of concern in Europe and worldwide. In order to manage this issue, risk assessments are used for informing decision makers about the uncertainties that can effect to the occurrence of such spills. This paper focuses on the risk identification stage in context of Pollution Preparedness and Response risk management. This stage of the risk assessment process is critical, because a risk that is not identified will not be included in further analysis nor communicated to the decision makers. First, this paper describes a recently developed maritime application of the Event Risk Classification Method (ERC-M), which has a strong track record in different airlines companies. Second, the paper provides a case study, which is a practical demonstration of this ERC-M tool by
using Vessel Traffic Service incident reports as a data source.
