  7. Vegetable oils and Animal Fats • Existing Annex II Not “en route”No underwater discharge • Implemented differently by US

  8. Changes to MARPOL Annex II • Simplification • Align with the Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labeling of Chemicals Parallel Processes – Unclear outcome

  9. Changes to MARPOL Annex II • Change from 4 pollution categories +unregulated to 3 pollution categories + unregulated • Ship typing changes for chemical cargoesBased on hazards of residue dischargesBased on hazards of tank breach

  10. Ship Typing Based on entirely new pollution criteria developed from the Globally Harmonized System

  11. Rulemaking • Requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act

  12. Rulemaking • Requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) • APA precludes private disclosure concerning rulemaking (Ex Parte Communication)

  13. Rulemaking • Requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) • APA precludes private disclosure concerning rulemaking (Ex Parte Communication) • Start of rulemaking in Spring ‘06

  14. Rulemaking • Requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) • APA precludes private disclosure concerning rulemaking (Ex Parte Communication) • Start of rulemaking in Spring ’06 • After BLG 10 finalizes the list of chemicals

  15. Rulemaking Process • Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM)Requests comments from public Indicates the Agency’s intentions

  16. Rulemaking Process • Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) • Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM)Gives proposed regulatory language for rulemaking Requests comments on rulemaking

  27. Some Current Problems • Latex • Some vegetable oils

  28. Some Current Problems • Latex • Some vegetable oilsNo testing yet: Perilla Rice Bran Safflower etc.

  29. Some Current Problems • Latex • Some vegetable oils • Available tonnage of type 2 tanks on type 2 shipsInterruption of trades in the absence of shipsAppreciably higher freight ratesfor all chemicals
