Held at the Merchant Marine Training Centre, the focus of Thailand’s national training was the drafting of the legislation for MARPOL Annex V.
The participants selected by Thailand are either directly involved in the drafting process of the above convention 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.
The knowledge and information gathered by the participants during the national Train-Implement Course will be utilized in the amendments made to the existing legislation; Navigation in Thai Waters Act. Therefore, this training will help to facilitate efforts to ratify MARPOL Annex V.
