Updated Garbage Disposal Plan
We have been monitoring the evolution of MARPOL Annex V and the Polar Code and have updated the Garbage Disposal Plan (1029) to provide clearer decision support for dealing with garbage. The plan is a good companion to the Garbage Record Book and suitable for anyone working at sea.
The new version is not only clearer but also recognises areas covered by the Polar Code as well as Special Areas. The amended Garbage Disposal Plan also has been updated to reflect the MEPC.201 (62), 219 (63) and 264 (68).
Due to questions from customers related to the old garbage management plan, we would like to inform our customers that the former version is still correct and addresses the regulations. The new Garbage plan has been updated to make it clearer and has the Polar code mentioned that refers to the Arctic and Antarctic, whereas the older one mentions the Arctic and Antarctic but not the Polar Code.
