What is it about?

This instrument extends the provisions of the International Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness Response and Cooperation (London, 30 November 1990) to ships transporting hazardous and noxious substances. These substances include liquefied gas, certain chemical products or radioactive materials.

Why is it relevant?

By becoming a party to this instrument, a State prepares for marine pollution caused by hazardous and noxious substances and limits the impact of the pollution on the fishing and tourism industry. The present Protocol also provides for technical cooperation among member States. They mutually train personnel and ensure the availability of relevant technology, equipment and facilities.

Additional Information

The International Maritime Organization plays an important role of coordination in the deposit of the 2000 Protocol. Only State parties to the International Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Co-operation may ratify the present Protocol. In 2003, seven States, representing 11% of world tonnage, had ratified the 2000 Protocol.
