Marine Protection Rules Part 142A
Current version of Part 142A
This rule applies:
- New Zealand ships, warships and other ships of the New Zealand Defence Force
- foreign ships operating in areas of the sea under New Zealand jurisdiction, however foreign ships may, as an alternative to the International Pollution Prevention Certificate, present a certificate of fitness issued under the International Bulk Chemical or the Bulk Chemical Code.
Part 142A sets out requirements for the standardised certification of ships carrying noxious liquid substances in bulk in accordance with Regulation 9 and 10of Annex II of MARPOL 73/78. That certification, in the form of an International Pollution Prevention Certificate for the Carriage of Noxious Liquid Substance in Bulk, evidences compliance with the pollution prevention equipment and survey requirements of that Annex. Where visiting foreign ships are flagged in States not party to Annex II, an appropriate document, evidencing compliance with Annex II provisions, is required.
