Myanmar National Train-Implement Course

Yangon, Myanmar
Attended by nominated officials, this national delivery will assist in the implementation phase of the MARPOL Annex V and the Ballast Water Management (BWM) Convention.

Held at the Myanmar Maritime College, the focus of Myanmar’s national training was the drafting of the national legislation related to MARPOL Annex V and BWM Conventions.

The participants selected by the Myanmar Government, are either directly involved in the drafting process of the above conventions or are involved during the public participation process. Consequently, the knowledge gained by the participants during this national training is applied through their comments and inputs on the draft legislation.

As a result of the national training, it was realised that there is a need to establish a legal drafting team in addition to the National Task Force. The training provided a great networking opportunity for participants from different departments which generated a greater understanding of the technical and legal issues surrounding the conventions.
