The National Contingency Plan for Marine Pollution from Shipping and Offshore Installations (NCP) has traditionally been updated approximately every five years, to take account of lessons learned from marine pollution incidents and exercises that have arisen since the last edition.

The next revision exercise is scheduled to commence in late 2010 and will also include amendments to reflect machinery of government changes.
