Polish Register of Shipping (PRS) has amended Part IX - Environmental Protection – of Rules for Statutory Survey of Sea-Going Ships. The amendments were approved by PRS Executive Board on 31 March 2022 and entered into force on 1 April 2022.
The Rules apply to all sea-going ships flying the Polish flag on which PRS performs survey and statutory services as recognized organization on behalf of Flag Administrations. The requirements of Part IX, however, do not apply to motor boats and sea-going yachts of less than 24 m in length which are not subject to Annex IV and Annex V to MARPOL 73/78 Convention.
This part of the Rules also applies to ships which are subject to statutory survey and fly other than Polish flags and are classed with PRS.
