INTERTANKO issues its Practical Guide to Revisions to MARPOL Annex II

INTERTANKO is pleased to advise that it has this week issued its Practical Guide to the Revisions to MARPOL Annex II. This contains 40-plus pages of practical guidance regarding the revisions to MARPOL Annex II , the associated revisions to the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Dangerous Chemicals in Bulk (IBC Code).


It includes the effect on the carriage of vegetable oils, an update on the USCG Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) to implement MARPOL Annex II, and also a full comparison list of products indicating today's pollution category and ship type requirements beside the revised ship type and pollution category as of 1 January 2007.


The Guide can be downloaded from our web site (click here to view) or can be obtained in hard copy at no charge. Members requiring hard copies for the office, or for placing onboard their ships, are requested to contact Sally Woulfe.
