Protection of Bunker Tanks

A faulty link to a US House of Representatives Bill (HR5025) was given in our article on the above in last week’s Weekly NEWS, for which we apologise. A link to the relevant text is given in this issue.

In our Weekly NEWS No. 50 of 13 December 2002 we reported on an INTERTANKO submission to IMO on the above subject. The article gave a link to a US House of Representatives Bill (HR5025). Unfortunately that link was faulty and we apologise for the error. The text referred to the Maritime Safety Act 2000 as introduced to the House of Representatives on 27 July 2000. A copy of the full text can be downloaded from here.
