Consultation description

These regulations update the UK’s transposition of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) international convention for the prevention of pollution from ships (MARPOL Annex V - garbage) into domestic law. At the same time, it is proposed that they will introduce ambulatory reference which will allow for the regulations to incorporate any future amendments to the technical aspects of Annex V into UK law by reference on an ongoing basis, instead of transposing it provision by provision.

A full list of consultation questions is contained in Section 5 of this consultation.

Responses are welcome from Monday 3rd February 2020 until Monday 30th March 2020.
