Terminal operators are required to carry out Post-Event Notification and Inspection
following a significant, potentially damage-causing event
(such as an earthquake, storm, vessel impact, passing vessel incident, fire, explosion or tsunami) in accordance with MOTEMS Section 3102F.4. “Significant, potentially damage-causing event” means that all events must be reported which the Division determines to be “significant”, even if there is no damage to the terminal or vessel. For assistance in determining if a specific event warrants MOTEMS post-event notification and follow-up action, contact the local area Division field office in Northern California at 510.741.4950 and in Southern California at 562.499.6312.
