The Norwegian Centre for Oil Spill Preparedness and Marine Environment has developed a guideline describing best practice for the clean-up of marine litter. The purpose of the guideline is to take care of the health and safety of clean-up personnel, protect the environment and make the planning and execution more efficient.

The guideline has been designed for organisers and clean-up personnel but may also be useful for other target groups. The guideline consists of articles and checklists. The articles contain background material on relevant topics. There is a checklist available for those who organise clean-up operations, as well as a checklist for clean-up personnel.
