The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) conducts inspections of UK ports against the approved Port Waste Management Plans held by them. These plans include the handling of exhaust gas cleaning residues. The inspections are conducted independently on each port, and the MCA has not observed a need to generate statistical information covering the entirety of UK ports.
