These documents set out the results of a review concerning the Ship to Ship (STS) Transfer Regulations, which have been operational for 5 years.
The review was designed to check if:
- the regulations had achieved their original objectives
- the regulations’ objectives were still valid
- the regulations were still required or could be improved to reduce the burden on business and its overall costs
The STS Regulations have a sunset clause, meaning they will cease to have effect as of 1 April 2019.
