ICOMIA releases environmental legislation guide

Publish date:

The International Council of Marine Industry Associations has published its latest Environment Guide, which outlines the latest environmental legislation affecting Asia, Australia, the European Union and the U.S.

It also includes guidelines and legislation from the International Maritime Organization.

The ICOMIA Environmental Guide, or IEG, explains in simple terms what the legislation is, why it has been imposed, when it will take effect, who it may affect and how it may affect them.

The latest edition features updates on the legislation, including the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act; the Product Stewardship Act; the Fuel Quality Standards Act; and the Toxic Substances Control Act.

It also covers issues and regulations that include work health and safety regulations; hazardous chemicals requiring health monitoring; national ocean policy; boat manufacturing; national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants; the International Convention on the Control of Harmful Antifouling Systems on Ships; and IMO Energy Efficiency Measures and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, including the Paris agreement.

The ICOMIA Environment Guide is available for $352.62 (300 euros). That price includes the latest version, followed by the next edition as soon as it’s published.

Members of ICOMIA — and their members — have free access to the IEG.
