star this property answer text <p>The UK, together with all other OSPAR Contracting Parties, recently agreed a Marine Litter Action Plan for the Northeast Atlantic that addresses litter from sources on land and sea. The UK is a party to the London Protocol, which would not permit ‘dumping’ of plastics in the ocean. My colleague, the Secretary of State for Transport, is responsible for shipping and the UK is party to the International Marine Organisation’s International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL). Under this Convention the discharge of plastics from ships is prohibited.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The primary focus of the UK’s international cooperation on marine litter is the OSPAR convention for the protection of the marine environment of the North-East Atlantic. In June 2014, OSPAR contracting parties agreed a regional action plan on marine litter. This plan fulfils requirements of the EU’s marine strategy framework directive for EU Member States to work together to address marine litter, and contributes to United Nations Environment Programme’s global partnership on marine litter. The UK also works within the International Maritime Organization (IMO), which has banned the discharge of plastic from shipping under MARPOL Annex V since 1988, and keeps MARPOL and its other Conventions under review.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
