MARPOL

Before this blog continues with the certification related to environmental protection, it will pause to put the certification in context by listing the parts of MARPOL and naming the related certificates.

The International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) is the main international convention covering prevention of pollution of the marine environment by ships from operational or accidental causes. Each of its annexes contains the regulations for specific potential sources of pollution.

Annex I– Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by oil

 Annex II– Regulations for the Control of Pollution by Noxious Liquid Substances in Bulk

Annex III– Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Harmful Substances Carried by sea in Packaged form

Annex IV– Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Sewage from Ships

Annex V-Regulation for the Prevention of Pollution by Garbage from Ships

Annex VI– Regulations for the Prevention of Air pollution from ships
