For example, it contains details on low cost sampling, testing, information gathering and documenting, consistent with the WAG, to allow characterization of the dredged material and selection of suitable disposal sites, including guidance on simple and low cost monitoring of disposal activities, and feedback surveys to improve decision making (ISBN 978-92-801-1606-9) (K540E).

A​​s a specialized agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.  

In other words, its role is to create a level playing-field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.

Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. And IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
