This draft model law has been designed specifically for countries which have already enacted
comprehensive marine pollution legislation, and in particular the model Marine Pollution
Prevention Act prepared by SPC and SPREP, and last revised in 2002. For countries that have not
enacted marine pollution legislation of that nature, it is recommended that instead of using this
draft model law, consideration be given to enacting comprehensive marine pollution legislation
based upon the recently revised Act, which now includes ballast water provisions consistent with
the Ballast Water Management Convention. Those new provisions are similar to the provisions of
these model draft Regulations.
