Recasting the Merchant Shipping (Prevention of Oil Pollution) Regulations 1996

This consultation closes at
10pm on 29 July 2018

Consultation description

The purpose of the proposed Regulations is to bring up to date the UK’s transposition of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) International Convention for the Prevention of Oil Pollution from Ships (MARPOL Annex I) into domestic law.

At the same time, it is proposed that they will introduce Ambulatory Reference with the Regulations to incorporate any future amendments to the technical aspects of the Convention (the detail which is of a more technical nature) of MARPOL Annex I into UK law by reference on an ongoing basis, instead of transposing it provision by provision.

Please find below a link to a public consultation package on the proposed Merchant Shipping (Prevention of Oil Pollution) Regulations:

This comprises:

The main Consultation Document
Annex A – Draft Statutory Instrument
Annex B – Application
Annex C – Proposed Offence & Penalties
Annex D – Marine Guidance Note (MGN)
Annex E – Impact Assessment
Annex F – Explanatory Memorandum

Support Seafarers Awareness Week 23-30 June 2018Support Seafarers Awareness Week 23-30 June 2018
Added: 17 May 2018
Since 2010 Seafarers UK has coordinated and promoted Seafarers Awareness Week in June each year.

The UK has always been heavily dependent on a thriving maritime industry. An estimated 95% of imports come to our ‘island nation’ by ship, including much of our everyday food and fuel. Yet many people are completely unaware of the world of shipping, the seafarers who work in it, and the essential role of our sea ports – more than any other European country.

Each year we focus on a fresh theme for Seafarers Awareness Week. In 2018 (23-30 June) we will be promoting UK maritime employment opportunities, including shore-based jobs, with an emphasis on engineering – one sector in which the Royal Navy, Royal Fleet Auxiliary and Merchant Navy are currently struggling to recruit people.

2018 has been designated ‘Year of Engineering’ by the UK Government.
