MARPOL Consolidated Edition 2017

IE520E 2017 Marpol

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 adopted by the 1973 Convention, as modified by a 1978

Protocol. These Annexes 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 a further Protocol in 1997 and covers air pollution from ships.

The 2017 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 the amendments that have

been adopted by the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC).
