Port State Control to check carefully compliance with revisions to MARPOL Annex II

Members should be aware that Port State Control (PSC) will be checking carefully ships' certification and compliance with the revisions to MARPOL Annex II which came into force on 1 January 2007.


We have issued various articles in the Weekly NEWS regarding the revisions and the requirements as well as preparations regarding revised P&A Manuals and certificates of fitness and the need to have these onboard the vessel by 1 January 2007. 


In addition, may we also draw members' attention again to our Practical Guide to the MARPOL Annex II revisions, which is available here as a pdf version

as well as in hard copy. Members requiring hard copies for the office and/or their ships should contact Sally Woulfe.
