the sea of ballast water or oil contaminated water from cargo tank areas, other
than those discharges below the waterline permitted under paragraph (6) of this
Regulation, from a position on the upper deck or above located so that the
manifold in use referred to in paragraph (1) of this Regulation and the
discharge to the sea from the pipelines referred to in paragraph (2) of this
Regulation may be visually observed. Means for stopping the discharge need not
be provided at the observation position if a positive communication system such
as a telephone or radio system is provided between the observation position and
the discharge control position.

(4) Every new oil tanker required to be provided with segregated ballast tanks
or fitted with a crude oil washing system shall comply with the following
requirements:
(a) it shall be equipped with oil piping so designed and installed that oil
retention in the lines is minimized; and
(b) means shall be provided to drain all cargo pumps and all oil lines at the
completion of cargo discharge, where necessary by connexion to a stripping
device. The line and pump drainings shall be capable of being discharged both
ashore and to a cargo tank or a slop tank. For discharge ashore a special small
diameter line shall be provided and shall be connected outboard of the ship's
manifold valves.

(5) Every existing crude oil tanker required to be provided with segregated
ballast tanks, or to be fitted with a crude oil washing system, or to operate
with dedicated clean ballast tanks, shall comply with the provisions of
paragraph (4) (b) of this Regulation.

(6) On every oil tanker the discharge of ballast water or oil contaminated
water from cargo tank areas shall take place above the waterline, except as
follows:
(a) Segregated ballast and clean ballast may be discharged below the
waterline:
(i) in ports or at offshore terminals, or
(ii) at sea by gravity,
provided that the surface of the ballast water has been examined immediately
before the discharge to ensure that no contamination with oil has taken place.

(b) Existing oil tankers which, without modification, are not capable of
discharging segregated ballast above the waterline may discharge segregated
ballast below the waterline at sea, provided that the surface of the ballast
water has been examined immediately before the discharge to ensure that no
contamination with oil has taken place.

(c) Existing oil tankers operating with dedicated clean ballast tanks, which
without modification are not capable of discharging ballast water from dedicated
clean ballast tanks above the waterline, may discharge this ballast below the
waterline provided that the discharge of the ballast water is supervised in
accordance with Regulation 13A (3) of this Annex.

(d) On every oil tanker at sea, dirty ballast water or oil contaminated water
from tanks in the cargo area, other than slop tanks, may be discharged by
gravity below the waterline, provided that sufficient time has elapsed in order
to allow oil/water separation to have taken place and the ballast water has been
examined immediately before the discharge with an oil/water interface detector
referred to in Regulation 15 (3) (b) of this Annex, in order to ensure that the
height of the interface is such that the discharge does not involve any
increased risk of harm to the marine environment.

(e) On existing oil tankers at sea, dirty ballast water or oil contaminated
water from cargo tank areas may be discharged below the waterline, subsequent to
or in lieu of the discharge by the method referred to in sub-paragraph (d) of
this paragraph, provided that:
(i) a part of the flow of such water is led through permanent piping

FOR THE CONSERVATION OF ANTARCTIC SEALS
The Contracting Parties.

Back to Top


Recalling the Agreed Measures for the Conservation of Antarctic Fauna
and Flora, adopted under the Antarctic Treaty signed at Washington on 1 December
1959;
Recognizing the general concern about the vulnerability of Antarctic
seals to commercial exploitation and the consequent need for effective
conservation measures;
Recognizing that the stocks of Antarctic seals are an important living
resource in the marine environment which requires an international agreement for
its effective conservation;
Recognizing that this resource should not be depleted by
over-exploitation, and hence that any harvesting should be regulated so as not
to exceed the levels of the optimum sustainable yield;
Recognizing that in order to improve scientific knowledge and so place
exploitation on a rational basis, every effort should be made both to encourage
biological and other research on Antarctic seal populations and to gain
information from such research and from the statistics of future sealing
operations, so that further suitable regulations may be formulated;
Noting that the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research of the
International Council of Scientific Unions (SCAR) is willing to carry out the
tasks requested of it in this Convention;
Desiring to promote and achieve the objectives of protection,
scientific study and rational use of Antarctic seals, and to maintain a
satisfactory balance within the ecological system,
