The Working Group on Risks of Maritime Activities in the Baltic Sea (WGMABS) is a scientific body for conducting risk assessments in the Baltic Sea.

WGMABS will comprise member country modellers and those involved in the practical preparedness in the case of oil spills. The intention is to form an advisory group for the area based on the support of regional risk management proposals by stakeholder groups and the International Maritime Organization (IMO)​.

Its initial aim will be scoping: finding out what current methods are available and what kind of data will fit each model and then asking the stakeholders where they see the need for advice. Promoting the advantages of an advisory system could help bring society round to investing in risk management activity.

WGMABS will deal with the creation of indicators and whether data for normal situations are needed in addition to those on unusual situations, examining what can be considered such a situation. The group will also consider the notion of tolerable and acceptable levels of risk.
