Résumé

With a view to preventing marine pollution from ships, these regulations govern disposal of garbage. The provisions apply both to Maltese ships, wherever they may be, and to other ships while they are in Malta. The disposal of all plastics from a ship into the sea outside special areas is prohibited (reg. 4). The disposal from a ship outside special areas of garbage other than plastic is prohibited, except where it is made as far as practicable from the nearest land and the conditions specified under regulation 4(2) are fulfilled. When garbage is mixed with other discharges the more stringent requirements shall apply. Regulation 5 concerns the disposal of garbage within special areas; regulation 6 concerns the disposal of garbage into the sea within five hundred metres of fixed or floating platforms.
