The convention was later again modified in The first treaty that came into force in the year prevented pollution by oil, chemicals and hazardous substances in packaged form.

What does Marpol Consists Of? The first annex of the six annexes came into force from and the rest of the annexes followed it gradually.
Each of the annexes is dedicated to the rules and regulations of a particular harmful substance. The amendments entered into force on 1 January It introduces requirements to control pollution of the sea by sewage from ships.
It specifies the distances from land in which materials may be disposed of and subdivides different types of garbage and marine debris. The requirements are much stricter in a number of "special areas" but perhaps the most prominent part of the Annex is the complete ban of dumping plastic into the ocean.
It also establishes requirements for reception facilities for wastes from exhaust gas cleaning systems, incinerators, fuel oil quality, for off-shore platforms and drilling rigs and for the establishment of SOx Emission Control Areas SECAs. Amended Regulations 12 concerns control and record keeping of Ozone Depleting Substances.
Amended Regulation 14 concerns mandatory fuel oil change over procedures for vessels entering or leaving SECA areas and FO sulphur limits. There are further provisions describing when and how to dispose of the acceptable wastes.
A system of tacit acceptance has therefore been put into place, whereby if no objections are heard from a member state after a certain period has elapsed, it is assumed they have assented to the treaty. All six Annexes have been ratified by the requisite number of nations; the most recent is Annex VI, which took effect in May Each signatory nation is responsible for enacting domestic laws to implement the convention and effectively pledges to comply with the convention, annexes, and related laws of other nations.
In the United States, for example, the relevant implementation legislation is the Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships. The country that the ship visits can conduct its own examination to verify a ship's compliance with international standards and can detain the ship if it finds significant noncompliance.
When incidents occur outside such country's jurisdiction or jurisdiction cannot be determined, the country refers cases to flag states, in accordance with MARPOL.The certificate is issued on behalf of the flag state.
It also establishes requirements for reception facilities for wastes from exhaust gas cleaning systems, incinerators, fuel oil quality, for off-shore platforms and drilling rigs and for the establishment of SOx Emission Control Areas SECAs. Nevertheless, any incidents reported will be considered on a case by case basis. However, the people involved revised the treaty because of the series of tanker accidents that took place between and Regulation 18 — Contains standards regarding the quality documentation requirements for fuel oil.
