Item Identification

Title: Marine Pollution Prevention Act
Short Name: MarinePollutionPreventionAct
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2015-05-04
Abstract:

The Marine Pollution Prevention Act of 2008 implements the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, including related Protocols (MARPOL) and its Annexes I (oil pollution), II (noxious liquid substances pollution), and V (garbage), as well as Annex IV of the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty. The Act imposes requirements on ships for handling of wastes from ships' operations, as well as notification requirements for oil discharges. For example, the Act prohibits disposal at sea of plastics, disposal of garbage in special areas (generally, semi-enclosed seas, Antarctica, and the wider Caribbean), disposal of garbage within 25 miles of land, and disposal of food wastes and other refuse within 12 miles of land.

Codification: 33 U.S.C. Section 1901 et seq.

Authority: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Coast Guard, and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

When investigating geo-regulatory boundaries near the boundary edges, users should consult the most up to date applicable jurisdictional boundaries available on MarineCadastre.gov. These geo-regulatory boundaries have not been updated in more than 13 years.

Purpose:

To support coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.

Process Step 1

CC ID: 652953
Description:

The exclusive economic zone (EEZ) boundary was clipped to the area of interest (see abstract). Coordinates were left unaltered. This EEZ segment was then used to form the seaward boundary of this data layer.
