MCA consultation on Merchant Shipping (Prevention of Oil Pollution) Regulations.

The MCA (Marine and Coastguard Agency) is consulting on the recasting the Merchant Shipping (Prevention of Oil Pollution) Regulations. (SI 1996/2154).  Consultation closes 29th July.  The purpose is to bring up to date the UK’s transposition of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) International Convention for the Prevention of Oil Pollution from Ships (MARPOL Annex I) into domestic law. At the same time, it is proposed that they will introduce Ambulatory Reference with the Regulations to incorporate any future amendments to the technical aspects of the Convention (the detail which is of a more technical nature) of MARPOL Annex I into UK law by reference on an ongoing basis, instead of transposing it provision by provision. https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/consultation-on-recasting-the-merchant-shipping-prevention-of-oil-pollution-regulations
