“Pollution Crimes Cost Greek Shipper $2.7 Million, Ships Barred from USA, NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana”

December 11, 2009

  • Polembros Shipping Ltd., a Greek ship management company, was sentenced federal court in New Orleans to pay $2.7 million criminal fine for violating anti-pollution laws, ship safety laws, and making false statements during a U.S. Coast Guard investigation of the cargo ship M/V Theotokos. Polembros was also ordered to pay a separate $100,000 community service payment to the Smithsonian Environmental Research Centre
  • The criminal prosecutions are under the Nonindigenous Aquatic Nuisance Prevention and Control Act of 1990. This law established a national ballast water control program in an attempt to prevent invasive aquatic species from entering U.S. waters.
  • Polembros pleaded guilty on September 30 to violating the Nonindigenous Aquatic Nuisance Prevention and Control Act by failing to maintain accurate ballast water records.
  • The court ordered that all ships owned or managed by Polembros, currently 20 vessels, will be barred from entering U.S. ports and territorial waters for three years as a condition of the probation imposed by the court.

Ballast Water Management Approach

  • Awareness Raising
  • Political engagement
  • Policy and legislation development
  • Risk assessment
  • Biological surveys (Ports)
  • Compliance monitoring
  • Regional Strategy Development

Regional Approach in Africa
  • Regional Strategies under development
  • Facilitation through LME’s (e.g. ASCLME)
  • Engagement through NC/AC
  • Important role for PMAWCA, PMAESA, PENAf
slide13

WIO / ASCLME Region

Existing regional frameworks:

  • ASCLME project
  • PMAESA, PENAf
  • Nairobi Convention (UNEP)
  • Scientific networks (WIOMSA, SAMSS)

Past progress:

  • Draft SEA Regional Strategy
  • National meetings
  • IMO engagement
slide14

Int’l Partnership Approach

Targeting developing countries & regions:

  • Raise awareness
  • Develop appropriate tools
  • Build capacity for management
slide15

Policy & Regulations

National level:

  • Development of BW Policy (Dept of Environment)
  • BW inclusion in Biodiversity & Ports Acts
  • Ratification of IMO BW Convention
  • Development of SA BW Act (ongoing)
  • Concurrent development of regulations
    • Port & Flag State Control
slide16

Policy & Regulations

Regional level:

  • Assistance with Strategy development for BWM for sub-regions
    • WACAF
    • Southern & East Africa
    • PERSGA
    • Mediterranean
  • Institutionalization within operational frameworks
  • Pollution Conventions
slide17

Policy Development & Guidelines

  • Review of IMO approach
  • Rapid assessment of national ability for implementation of BW regime
  • Template for status report to IMO
  • Co-published IOI - IMO/GBP
  • Available in hard copy or pdfhttp://globallast.imo.org
