DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AB97 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Implementation of MARPOL Annex V Amendments 

In July 2011, the International Maritime Organization's Marine Environment Protection Committee amended the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) Annex V Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Garbage from Ships (Annex V). These Annex V amendments entered into force internationally on January 1, 2013. On February 28, 2013, the Coast Guard published an interim final rule (IFR) with request for comments to put revised implementing regulations in place for the U.S., while still allowing for changes as a result of public comment. Prior to finalizing this rule, the Coast Guard intends to publish an additional IFR to make necessary clarifications and modifications to the regulations. This rulemaking revises regulations in 33 CFR part 151 as necessary to conform to the requirements of Annex V.
