Miscellaneous waste produced in the course of operating the vessels Part C

Part C of the Treaty relates to the waste which is not listed in Parts A and B. For example, domestic waste, domestic waste water, sewage sludge, slops from holds and tanks and all non-oily waste including small-quantity hazardous waste (SHW).

The general principle of the Convention is that the cost of removing the waste should be paid by the generator, and that the financing should be in a uniform manner.

For the removal of domestic waste water, sewage sludge, domestic waste and small hazardous waste from passenger ships, the cost can be charged separately to the boatmaster. This must, however, be harmonised internationally.
