Foreword

 

The Contracting Parties to the London Convention (LC) and London Protocol (LP) have developed international guidance/guidelines to assist national authorities responsible for regulating the dumping of wastes at sea in meeting their obligations under the two instruments. To assist Parties with targeted assessments of each of the London Protocol annex 1 wastes or other matter that may be considered for dumping, the Parties have developed Generic and Specific Waste Assessment Guidelines (WAGs). The Generic and Specific WAGs are also used by the Parties to LC.

 

These Guidelines contain a logical step-by-step procedure to evaluate wastes being considered for disposal at sea. An essential element of this procedure is waste characterization and the assessment of potential adverse environmental effects of dumping waste. To support this assessment, Contracting Parties are required to develop a national action list and action levels to provide a mechanism for screening candidate wastes and their constituents on the basis of their potential effects on human health and the marine environment. The Guidelines were approved by the LC/LP governing bodies in 2017 (document LC 39/16/Add.1, annex 3).

 

This publication provides readers with simple, clear guidance that can support countries that currently have no action lists and action levels in place to starting on the road to developing regionally and locally relevant lists and levels and implementing LP. Further information and up-to-date examples can be obtained from the LC/LP Secretariat at IMO.

As a specialised 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.
