Convention on the Prevention of marine pollution by dumping of wastes and other matter 1972 + 1996 protocol
Since 1997, the Consultative Meetings of the London Convention and its Protocol adopted twelve guidance documents, as follows:
â€¢ One to assist in the application of the de minimis concept under the London Convention 1972;
â€¢ One on the assessment of wastes or other matter that may be considered for dumping (the â€œGeneric Guidelinesâ€);
â€¢ Eight comprehensive â€œSpecific Guidelinesâ€ for all wastes that are excepted from an overall prohibition on dumping;
â€¢ One on the sampling and analysis of dredged material intended for disposal at sea; and
â€¢ One on the national implementation of the London Protocol.
It should be noted that the Guidelines for the Sampling and Analysis of Dredged Material Intended for Disposal at Sea were published by IMO as a separate publication in 2005.
The present publication provides the reader with a compilation of the eleven remaining guidance documents.
