Recommendations

  • De-ballasting operations should be avoided unless the ballast water was checked and confirmed to be clean.
  • All overboard discharge valves should be closed and secured/sealed in closed position.
  • All deck scuppers should be plugged and any gaps in the fish plate surrounding the deck should be closed.
  • Hose test of hatch covers, hydrostatic test of deck pipes/hoses or other equipment should not be performed.
  • Washing of decks and superstructure should be avoided.
  • Treated water from the sewage system and grey water should be transferred to a holding tank and should not be discharged until the vessel is outside Turkish waters.
  • Cargo residues, cargo space cleaning residues, all garbage and other substances should not be disposed in Turkish waters.
  • The vessel’s hull should not be scrapped, chipped or painted while alongside the pier or at anchor.
  • While the vessel is at the shipyard or in dry dock, even if the pollution is caused by the negligence of the shipyard, its employees or agents, the ship may be held vicariously liable for the pollution fine. Therefore the crew members should exercise care and they should immediately protest in writing to the shipyard where they believe pollution took place.
