    International Convention on the Control of Harmful Anti-Fouling Systems on Ships, 2005 Edition

     

    It reproduces the texts of the 2001 convention, the four Conference resolutions, and the Guidelines developed and adopted by the Organization.

    The harmful effects of anti-fouling systems were considered by the International Maritime Organization's Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) for the first time in 1988, when the Paris Commission requested the MEPC to consider the need for measures to restrict the use of tributyltin (TBT) compounds on seagoing vessels. As a first step, the Committee at its thirtieth session in 1990 adopted resolution MEPC.46(30) on "Measures to control potential adverse impacts associated with the use of tributyltin compounds in anti-fouling paints", which recommends that IMO Member Governments adopt measures to eliminate the use of anti-fouling paint containing TBT on non-aluminium-hulled vessels of less than 25m in length and eliminate the use of TBT-based anti-fouling paints with an average leaching rate of more than four micrograms of organotin per square centimetre per day.

     

    These recommendations were intended to be interim measures until IMO could consider a possible total prohibition of TBT compounds in anti-fouling systems. From 1990 onwards, MEPC was presented with TBT monitoring results which reconfirmed the toxicity of TBT compounds, as well as with information on existing alternatives, including their effectiveness and the risk posed to the marine environment by these systems.

    Accessing your IMO Digital Purchases

    From 1 May 2022, IMO moved to a new, hybrid version of the IMO Bookshelf, which enables browser-based access to IMO publications.

    Support for the existing Windows-based version of the IMO Bookshelf will continue until 30 June 2023, but no new purchases in this format can be made after 1 May 2022.

    Migration to the new system:

    • Migration can only take place once a customer has purchased an e-reader for the new IMO Bookshelf service from 1 May 2022.
    • Customers do not need to migrate their existing publications unless they choose to do so. Their Windows-based IMO Bookshelf products will remain available indefinitely, although technical support for the product will end in June 2023.
    • Users wishing to migrate must be using version 5.13 of the Windows-based IMO Bookshelf software.

    Users wishing to migrate their existing IMO publications to the new service, who has purchased an e-reader for the new IMO Bookshelf service from 1 May 2022, should contact us at books@ms-sc.org with the details of their IMO Virtual Publications account. We will arrange the migration with IMO.
