The HELCOM Expert Group  on Aerial Surveillance (EG Surveillance) works to implement the aerial surveillance cooperation as laid down in Chapter 6, of the HELCOM Response Manual. HELCOM Contracting Parties have agreed to develop and apply individually or in co-operation, surveillance activities covering the Baltic Sea area in order to spot and monitor oil and other substances released into the sea. 

EG Surveillance has incorporated all functions of the former HELCOM Informal Working Group on Aerial Surveillance (IWGAS).
