REPORT ON FEASIBILITY STUDY ON RECEPTION FACILITIES FOR SELECTED PORTS IN A SPECIAL AREA - MEDITERRANEAN. VOLUME I. GENERAL

The report covers a joint IMCO/UNEP study of 73 ports in the Mediterranean Sea to determine the need for reception facilities in these ports for handling oily wastes from ships. The objective of the study was to provide assistance to countries in the Mediterranean Sea to meet the requirements for reception facilities in special areas as prescribed under Regulation 12 of Annex I of the 1973 International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from ships. Certain ecologically sensitive regions, such as the Mediterranean Sea have been designated by the 1973 Convention as 'special areas' in which any discharge of oil into the sea is prohibited. The provision of adequate reception facilities in the 'special areas' is one of the critical requirements toward achieving the goal of the 1973 Conventions, i.e. complete elimination of intentional pollution and the minimization of accidental spills. The report is published in three volumes; Vol. I - General, contains general observations and recommendations.
