Yacht Management – Marpol Annex I

Yacht Management – Marpol Annex I. IMO Marpol Convention Annex I Oil Pollution applies to all vessels including commercial charter motor yachts UK and private motor yachts UK.  Commercial and Private Motor Yachts whose tonnage is equal to or greater than 400 gross tons have a statutory requirement to carry on board statutory documents and certificates.  The validity of the certification is enforced by Flag State and Port State Control.  The following statutory certificates and documentation is required:

  • International Oil Pollution Prevention Certificate
  • Shipboard Oil Pollution Emergency Plan (SOPEP)
  • Oil Record Book (ORB)
The SOPEP must be approved by the Flag State and the ORB is a legally binding document signed by the engineer in charge and the Master.
