Detail of outcome
At the close of this consultation, we had received no comments regarding its content, and therefore no action was taken.
The amending Regulations bring into effect a minor change replacing the current waste notification form (set out in schedule 2 of the 2003 Regulations), with that required by Commission Directive (EU) 2015/87 amending Annex II to Directive 2000/59/EC of the European Parliament and the Council on port reception facilities for ship-generated waste and cargo residues.
The current waste notification form is no longer in line with international regulations as set out in the MARPOL Convention, in particular MARPOL Annex V - Garbage. The new form to be used by ships’ masters when delivering waste to port reception facilities contains additional sub-categories of garbage and a column in which to record information about waste delivered in the last port of delivery.
