Aims to curb marine pollution

The management and control of marine pollution is steadily assuming a higher priority for shipowners and masters as governments, official bodies and politiciansfocus increasingly on MARPOL infringements and threaten key personnel with criminal prosecution.

However, the industry should not simply react to authorities’ requirements but take a positive approach to avoid damaging the marine environment during operations.

Marine Pollution Prevention Pocket Checklist, jointly published by Lloyd’s Register and the UK P&I Club, aims to provide practical advice for owners, operators and particularly seafarers to help them comply with the MARPOL Convention and prepare for Port State Control inspections – given a context of commercial disruption, fines and the growing threat of criminal proceedings against key personnel and the spectre of imprisonment.
