A flaw Germany discovered before charging bulker for violation of environmental regulation

On September 18, 2019, the water police in Stade
inspected the unnamed bulker at the Port of Stade on the River Elbe.

The officers checked, among other things, the ship’s
compliance with MARPOL annexes.
While examining the vessel’s Oil Record Book, the water
police discovered that, over a period of six months, there were no plausible
operational procedures for fuel processing and dealing with oil and combustion
Specifically, many obligatory records were not
maintained at all.
The captain and the chief engineer of the ship are held
responsible for the matter, according to the water police.
After consultations with the relevant Federal Maritime
and Hydrographic Agency of Germany (BSH), the water police ordered a security
provision of about EUR 7,000 (USD 7,772).
