Posted: Tuesday, July 11, 2023. 10:57 am CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: Belize was represented at the 80th Session of the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) which was held in London last week.

Member countries gathered for the session from July 3-7 and discussed critical issues such as amendments to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL).

According to the Belize Port Authority, discussions also centered around Ballast Water Management and Antifouling System Conventions, and working toward the designation of Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas (PSSAs) and Emission Control Areas (ECAs) under the MARPOL.

“Most notable, however, was the adoption of the 2023 IMO Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Revised Strategy, which aims to effectively decarbonize shipping in line with global goals,” the BPA said.

The delegation was headed by the Ambassador of Belize to the United Nations, H.E. Carlos Fuller and included Manager of the International Merchant Marine Registry of Belize (IMMARBE), Eduardo Simon, Chairman of the Board of the Belize Port Authority (BPA), Major (Ret’d) Lloyd Jones, Ports Commissioner of the BPA, Ms. Darlin Gaitan, and Techincal Officer of IMMARBE, Anique Sabal.
