Decision ID: 004103

At their April 2016 sessions, the 1992 Fund Administrative Council and Supplementary Fund Assembly decided to amend the text of the form for reporting receipts of contributing oil as contained in the Annex of document IOPC/APR/16/6/2/Corr.1 to reflect the 1992 Fund Administrative Council’s October 2015 decision to reverse the Assembly’s 2006 decision that oil discharged into ‘permanently or semi-permanently’ anchored vessels engaged in ship-to-ship (STS) operations should qualify as contributing oil for the purpose of Article 10 of the 1992 Fund Convention and to discard the concept of craft ‘permanently or semi-permanently’ at anchor.  The governing bodies also decided that the amendment to the report on receipts of contributing oil should take effect from 1 January 2017.
