Growing concern by industry and government over the pollution of the environment and, in particular, over the amounts of oils that were finding their way into the oceans each year led to a succession of resolutions by the United Nations Intergovernmental Maritime Consultative Organization (IMCO) intended to restrict and control both the location and the long term effect of routine discharges from tankers. The significant events since 1954 are listed together with key events in the Bailey Monitor program. The progress and mutual interaction of both programmes are discussed in detail in this paper.
