The main tasks of TFOPP are to identify how best the Arctic Council can contribute to marine oil pollution prevention in the Arctic, to recommend a concrete plan of action, and, as appropriate, to develop cooperative arrangements to implement the Action Plan. TFOPP held its first two meetings in Oslo, Norway and Reykjavik, Iceland in 2014. It will deliver its recommendations to the Ministerial Meeting in 2015, although a renewal of its mandate is possible. Norway and Russia are co-chairing the Task Force.
