Detail of outcome
As a result of this consultation we have issued the following documents: Consultation on recasting the Merchant Shipping (Prevention of Oil Pollution) Regulations Outcome Report and a draft MIN on Marpol Annex I Resolutions.
The purpose of the proposed Regulations 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.
