$42.00 GST

This publication contains:

  • the 2017 Guidelines for the implementation of MARPOL Annex V (resolution MEPC.295(71))
  • the 2012 Guidelines for the development of garbage management plans (resolution MEPC.220(63)), and

MARPOL Annex V seeks to eliminate and reduce the amount of garbage being discharged into the sea from ships. Unless expressly provided otherwise, Annex V applies to all ships, which means all ships of any type whatsoever operating in the marine environment, from merchant ships to fixed or floating platforms to non-commercial ships like pleasure crafts and yachts.

Under MARPOL Annex V, garbage includes all kinds of food, domestic and operational waste, all plastics, cargo residues, incinerator ashes, cooking oil, fishing gear and animal carcasses generated during the normal operation of the ship and liable to be disposed of continuously or periodically.
