Part 102, together with associated provisions in the Maritime Transport Act 1994, elaborates the requirement that owners of ships carrying more than 2,000 tonnes of persistent oil in bulk as cargo have certificates which verify the existence of public liability insurance sufficient to cover any claims for oil pollution damage arising from a marine oil spill. The requirement gives effect to provisions of the Protocol of 1992 to amend the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage (1969) to which New Zealand is party.

Part 102 also requires other ships of 400 gross tons or more and offshore installation within New Zealand continental waters to hold certificate of insurance for liability cover for oil pollution damage.
