In the Official Gazette N° 40.427, dated December 5th, 2012, the amendments to the Annex I of the Protocol of 1978 relating to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships have entered into force. The amendments imply the addition of a new Chapter 9 to Marpol Annex I, called “Special requirements for the use or carriage of oils in the Antarctic area”. In this new chapter the carriage in bulk as cargo or carriage and use as fuel of some products is prohibited. However, when prior operations have included them, the cleaning or flushing of tanks or pipelines is not required.
