USCG Interim Guidance for Revised MARPOL Annex V Implementation February 27 2013

From ECM Maritime Services:

The USCG has issued a Policy Letter dated February 26th, 2013 (attached), providing Interim Guidance for implementation of the requirements contained in the revised Annex V to MARPOL 73/78. Also included therein is the proposed format for Garbage Record Books as well as the text for shipboard antipollution placards (on the last two pages, which we recommend supplying to your US-calling vessels as stickers or posters). Alternatively, these could be printed out on board and posted in conspicuous locations.
