Garbage placard for domestic commercial vessels
Complete a publications order form to request placards, or stickers, for your vessel.
Garbage placards are mandatory for:
- vessels of 12 metres or more in length
- fixed or floating platforms.
Placards notify crew and passengers of regulations associated with the discharge of garbage into the sea. They should be displayed on the vessel where they are visible for both crew and passengers. There is no standard format for a placard, but we developed four types to help owners and operators comply with these requirements.
