The International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973, as modified by the Protocol of 1978 relating thereto (better known as MARPOL 73/78), is one of the most important international agreements on the subject of marine pollution. The International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, widely known as the MARPOL Convention, was adopted in 1973. Its technical content is laid out in six Annexes, the first five of which were adopted by the 1973 Convention and a 1978 Protocol. These cover pollution of the sea by oil, by noxious liquid substances in bulk, by harmful substances carried by sea in packaged form, by sewage from ships and by garbage from ships. Annex VI was adopted by a further Protocol in 1997; it covers air pollution from ships. This consolidated edition includes the texts of the Convention and its Protocols, Annexes I to VI, Unified Interpretations agreed with the International Association of Classification Societies, and prospective amendments to Annexes I and IV. The text includes all amendments in force as of 22 November 2006 and the revised texts of Annexes I and II (adopted in October 2004), which enter into force on 1 January 2007
