REGULATIONS ON DISCHARGE OF SEWAGE - IMO CLARIFICATIONS

In an effort to facilitate the implementation of Annex IV of MARPOL regarding sewage discharge, the IMO requested member states to provide information on their discharge regulations together with their sewage reception facilities.

The result has been a hand full of responses from both contracting and non-contracting parties to the Annex. States which have given details in the circular are Bulgaria, Ecuador, Estonia, Germany, Lithuania, Sweden, Singapore, Vanuatu and Hong Kong, China. The information was recently sent out in an IMO paper Click here to download a copy of the paper
