Iran Ratifies Dumping of Wastes at Sea Treaty

Friday / November 25, 2016


The Islamic Republic of Iran has become the latest country to accede to the IMO treaty covering dumping of wastes at sea. H.E. Dr. Hamid Baeidi Nejad, newly appointed Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Kingdom and Permanent Representative to IMO, met IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim at IMO Headquarters, London, to deposit the instrument of accession to the London Convention Protocol of 1996 and corresponding 2009 amendments.

The London Protocol entered into force ten years ago, modernizing the original “London Convention” dumping treaty by prohibiting all dumping at sea with the exception of wastes commonly agreed by Governments and then put on an approved list.
