Promoting MARPOL 73/78 Annex I Compliance


Promoting MARPOL 73/78 Annex I Compliance

The Secretariats of the Paris MOU, the Tokyo MOU and the Vina del Mar Agreement have announced that they are conducting a three-month concentrated inspection campaign (CIC) from February 1 to April 30, 2006 in order to promote effective operation of shipboard equipment and compliance with pollution prevention procedures. The campaign will target aspects of the operational control provisions of the MARPOL 73/78 Annex I convention on all vessels, regardless of type.

Owners are advised to maintain the highest standards of readiness in respect of crew, equipment and records at all times. Port state control officers (PSCOs) will be carrying out the checks in conjunction with their routine PSC inspections, and it is expected that particular attention will be paid to:

  • ensuring correct entries to the IOPP Certificate for oil filtering equipment, the incinerator and the auxiliary boiler for burning oil residues
  • onboard planned maintenance, testing and inspection of the oil filtering equipment, including records of the carrying out of these procedures
  • proper operation and control of the 15 ppm alarm and the three-way valve or stopping device
  • the arrangements for discharge of sludge/oil waste to shore facilities and records of the use of the incinerator or auxiliary boiler for onboard burning where no discharges at shore facilities take place
  • any sign of illegal arrangements to bypass the oily water discharge system or overboard connections from sludge tanks.
