    INTRODUCTION

    1. This Shipboard Marine Pollution Emergency Plan (hereafter refered to as the "Plan") is written in

    accordance with the requirements of regulation 37 of Annex I and regulation 17 of Annex II of the

    International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973 as modified by the Protocol of

    1978 relating there to and amended by Res. MEPC.78(43).

    As recommeded by IMO this plan is a combination of a SOPEP and a Shipboard Marine Pollution

    Emergency Plan for noxious liquid substances.

    2. The purpose of the Plan is to provide guidance to the Master and officers on board the Ship with respect

    to the steps to be taken when an oil or marine pollution incident has occured or is likely to occur. The

    appendices contain communication data of all contacts referenced in the Plan, as well as other reference

    material.

    3. The Plan contains all information and operational instructions as required by the "Guidelines for the

    development of the Shipboard Marine Pollution Emergency Plan" as developed by the Organization (IMO)

    and published under MEPC.85(44) and MEPC.54(32) amended by MEPC.86(44).

    4. The Plan has been approved by the Administration and, except as provided below, no alteration or

    revision shall be made to any part of it without the prior approval of the Administration.

    5. Changes to Section 5 and the appendices will not be required to be approved by the Administration. The

    appendices should be maintained up to date by the owners, operators and managers.

    SECTION 1: PREAMBLE

1.1 This Plan is available to assist the ship?s personell in dealing with an unexpected discharge of oil or

    noxious liquid substances. Its primary purpose is to set in motion the necessary actions to stop or

    minimize the discharge of those substances and to mitigate its effects.

1.2 Effective planning ensures that the necessary actions are taken in a structured, logical and timely manner.

1.3 The primary objectives of this Plan are to

    ? prevent pollution

    ? stop or minimize outflow when a damage to the ship or its requirements occurs

    ? stop or minimize outflow when a operational spill occurs in excess of the quantity or

     instantaneous rate permitted under the present Convention

1.4 Further, the purpose of the Plan is to provide the Master, officers and certain crew members with a

    practical guide to the prevention of marine spills and in carrying out the responsibilities associated with

    regulation 37 of Annex I and Reg. 17 of Annex II of MARPOL 73/ 78:

    ? procedures to report an oil / marine pollution incident
