The data from these reports are useful to the Organization to assess the effectiveness of the application of the Convention and for statistical purposes. In accordance with MEPC/Circ.318, Parties are requested to submit their annual reports by 30 September of the following year. 2 The Sub-Committee at its fifteenth session noted document FSI 15/4 which contained a summary of mandatory reports by Parties to MARPOL for the year 2005, which also included as annex 1 a tabular list of Parties, showing the date each became Party to MARPOL and which Parties had submitted reports in each of the last five years, and which Parties had failed to do so. 1 Regulations 38 and 18 of the revised Annex I and Annex II respectively, which entered into force on 1/1/2007. For reasons of economy, this document is printed in a limited number. Delegates are kindly asked to bring their copies to meetings and not to request additional copies.

2 FSI 16/ The Sub-Committee concluded that the rate of reporting was still very low as the information provided in document FSI 15/4 had shown and as was also recognized at every session of the Sub-Committee since FSI Following a discussion on the possible reasons for the low rate of reporting, the Sub-Committee agreed on the following actions:.1 the table in annex 1 to document FSI 15/4 containing information on which Parties had submitted reports in the last five years, in future should also include information identifying Parties who had submitted reports outside the reporting periods;.2 the low level of reporting could be indicating difficulties arising from the format and/or information content specified by MEPC/Circ.318 and therefore submissions from Members were invited to the next session of the Sub-Committee to identify any problems posed by MEPC/Circ.318 and to propose any appropriate changes to the Circular; and.3 the Secretariat was requested to revert to the next session of the Sub-Committee with further information on the potential extraction of data required by MEPC/Circ.318 from relevant modules of GISIS, thus simplifying the mandatory reporting requirements for Parties to MARPOL. 5 The Sub-Committee requested the Secretariat to update the data and the annexed list to document FSI 15/4, and to submit these to FSI 16 for consideration. Mandatory reports under MARPOL for The status of mandatory reports under MARPOL from 2002 to 2006 is set out at annex 1 of this document in a format which combines the tabular presentation of document FSI 15/4, and the additional information requested by the Sub-Committee for identifying Parties who have submitted reports outside the reporting periods. 7 Since FSI 15, the Secretariat has received mandatory reports under MARPOL for 2006 from 34 Parties to MARPOL in accordance with MEPC/Circ.318, as shown in annex 1 to this document.
