description {



The International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973 (MARPOL Convention), is concerned with preserving the marine environment through the prevention of pollution by oil and other harmful substances and the minimization of accidental discharge of such substances. Its technical content is laid out in six Annexes, the first five of which were in the 1973 Convention, as modified by the 1978 Protocol, and cover pollution of the sea by oil, by noxious liquid substances in bulk, by harmful substances in packaged form, by sewage from ships and by garbage from ships. Annex VI was adopted by the 1997 Protocol and covers air pollution from ships.

The 2011 consolidated edition aims to provide an easy and comprehensive reference to the up-to-date provisions and Unified Interpretations of the Articles, Protocols and Annexes of the MARPOL Convention, including the incorporation of all of the amendments that have been adopted by the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) and entered into force, up to and including the 2010 amendments as adopted by resolutions MEPC.190(60) and MEPC.194(61).

The Additional Information section of the consolidated edition includes amendments to the revised Annex III adopted on 1 October 2010 by resolution MEPC.193(61) and entering into force on 1 January 2014, if accepted, as well as prospective amendments to Annexes IV, V and VI adopted on 15 July 2011 by resolutions MEPC.200(62), MEPC.201(62), MEPC.202(62) and MEPC.203(62) which, if accepted, enter into force on 1 January 2013.

Also included in Additional Information, for ease of reference, are the consolidated texts of both Annex IV and Annex VI. The former includes amendments adopted by resolution MEPC.200(62) on special area provisions and the latter those amendments adopted by resolution MEPC.203(62) on energy efficiency for ships.

A comprehensive review of the 1978 STCW Convention commenced in January 2006 and culminated in a Conference of Parties to the STCW Convention, held in Manila, Philippines, from 21 to 25 June 2010, that adopted a significant number of amendments to the STCW Convention and STCW Code.

The amendments update standards of competence required, particularly in light of emerging technologies, introduce new training and certification requirements and methodologies, improve mechanisms for enforcement of its provisions, and detail requirements on hours of work and rest, prevention of drug and alcohol abuse and medical fitness standards for seafarers.

This publication contains the Final Act of the 2010 Conference of Parties to the 1978 STCW Convention, resolutions adopted by that Conference, and a complete, consolidated text of the STCW Convention, including its original articles, revised annex and supporting STCW Code.

The Convention articles and annex provide the legal framework within which mandatory technical standards contained in part A of the STCW Code are applied. Part B of the Code provides guidance to assist those involved in educating, training or assessing the competence of seafarers or who are otherwise involved in applying STCW Convention provisions.

While not mandatory, the guidance given has been harmonized through discussions within IMO, involving, where appropriate, consultation with the International Labour Organization. Observance of this guidance will contribute to achieving a more uniform application of Convention requirements.

All parts of this publication must be studied to understand the intent of the Convention fully and to give complete effect to the minimum global standards of knowledge, understanding, experience and professional competence desired by the States that are Parties to it, the industry itself and the general public.

The Convention and part A of the Code form a binding treaty between States, the interpretation of which is governed by the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. The revision aims to bring the Convention and Code up to date with developments since the last full revision and to enable them to address issues that are anticipated to emerge in the foreseeable future in an effort to raise the standards of competence and professionalism of seafarers, upon whom the safety of life, property and the environment depends.

The Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), at its thirty-third session, agreed that a new section V of the IMO Manual on Oil Pollution, dealing with administrative aspects and, in particular, with the roles and functions of entities which could be involved in an oil pollution emergency and its aftermath, should be developed. The present text is a revision of the first edition of the Manual, published in 1998, taking into account changes and new information on the topic since the original version.

This section of the Manual on Oil Pollution is intended to provide the reader, in particular on scene commanders, lead agencies and others involved in the management of oil pollution response, with an appreciation of the various interests involved in an oil pollution emergency and its aftermath, as well as a general review of the international legal regimes governing limitation of liability and compensation for oil pollution damage.

This section is not intended to provide an authorized or definitive commentary on the legal relationships between the various entities involved in an oil pollution emergency or an interpretation of relevant international conventions. The reference section includes sources of more comprehensive information on these subjects, and the reader is encouraged to make use of them if more detailed information is required.
