The INTERTANKO Safety, Technical and Environmental Committee (ISTEC) developed this Guide to assist ship operators with the proper and consistent filling in of the Oil Record Book Part I (ORB) and to avoid possible errors in logging information in it, which has been one of the main reasons for the increasing problems of ships being detained and fined in the US and other countries.
This new edition addresses the increasing problems of ships being detained and fined due to equipment malfunction and also gives guidance on the management of ship oil-water separators in the engine room. This 3rd edition includes a significant number of relevant amendments, agreed by the IMO, which are required due to revisions of the Annex 1 MARPOL 73/78 regulation.
