Regulations Applying MARPOL Annex I - Prevention of Pollution by Oil

Closed 4 Jan 2019

Opened 23 Nov 2018


The Isle of Man Ship Registry is consulting on a proposed set of updated Regulations to give effect to the latest version of MARPOL Annex I. The current Regulations applying MARPOL Annex I are the Merchant Shipping (MARPOL Annex I – Prevention of Pollution by Oil) Regulations 2006, which will be revoked.

Why We Are Consulting

There have been a number of amendments to MARPOL Annex I since the current Regulations were written in 2006. Operators should be familiar with these requirements since these are already in force internationally and therefore we do not foresee any changes to current practices. The new Regulations will implement all amendments up to and including those within MEPC.276(70).
