After extensive consultation with representatives of the UK ports industry, it was agreed that port waste management plans conforming to the new regulations would be submitted to the Maritime and Coastguard Agency by 31 December 2003. Currently, Maritime and Coastguard Agency marine offices are reviewing the submitted port waste management plans, and any harbours or terminals with outstanding or non-compliant plans are being contacted. They are being requested to submit revised plans as soon as possible.
