Details

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.
