Overview

Updates to Regulations Applying International Marine Pollution Prevention Regulations in particular MARPOL Annexes III-VI and Protocol I.

Why We Are Consulting

The Isle of Man Ship Registry is consulting on a proposed set of amendments to the following Regulations which give effect to MARPOL Annexes III-VI & Protocol I:

  • Merchant Shipping (MARPOL Protocol I – Reports on Incidents Involving Harmful Substances) Order 2015
  • Merchant Shipping (MARPOL Annex III – Prevention of Pollution by Harmful Substances) Order 2015
  • Merchant Shipping (MARPOL Annex IV – Prevention of Pollution by Sewage) Order 2014
  • Merchant Shipping (MARPOL Annex V – Prevention of Pollution by Garbage) Order 2014
  • Merchant Shipping (MARPOL VI – Prevention of Air Pollution) Order 2014

The purpose of these updates is to bring the Regulations up to date with the latest versions of the Convention. Since most of these amendments are already in force internationally, the effect on Manx Ships is likely to be minimal.
