The Atlantic Geographic Annex (CANUSLANT Plan) is an operational annex to the bilateral Joint Marine Pollution Contingency Plan between the United States and Canada established to ensure coordinated planning, preparedness and response to a harmful substance incident in the contiguous waters of the two nations. The Atlantic Geographic Annex covers the Atlantic marine boundary between Canada and the United States, defines the CANUSLANT Joint Response Team (JRT), and is regularly tested and improved in an ongoing series of CANUSLANT exercises. Its purpose is to augment and link the pollution response systems and plans in each nation to facilitate an efficient joint response to a cross-border spill.
