Building a New Regulation on Prevention from Marine Environmental Pollution Caused by Ship-Source Pollution

Nguyen Van Truong


Over the past years, Vietnam has been aware of the deterioration of the marine environment due to impacts from ship-source pollution. In order to prevent and control this pollution, Vietnam has made efforts to issue a number of national technical standards and legal documents related to the marine environment protection from the effects of ship-source pollution, particularly caused by ship’s garbage. However, there is still a lack of several basis legal documents to ensure that Vietnam can be prevented and tightly controlled due to pollution from ship-source. Thus, in addition to concluding international conventions, studying and learning law-making experiences of progressive countries in the region, reviewing and improving the legal system in this field, building and issuing a special regulation on the marine environment control and prevention from ship-source pollution are essential tasks. In the scope of an article, the author provides an analysis of the importance of building a new regulation in this field and suggests a new regulation on the marine environment control and prevention from pollution, caused by ship-source, as well as by garbage (herein after call new regulation). It is expected that in the near future, the Vietnam laws on the prevention from marine environmental pollution due to the impacts from ship-source pollution will be more completed and effective.
