Availability: In Stock
A Particularly Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA) is an area of the marine environment that needs special protection through action by the IMO because of its significance for recognized ecological, socio-economic, or scientific attributes where such attributes may be vulnerable to damage by international shipping activities.
This publication presents:
- Revised PSSA Guidelines
- Revised Guidelines to submit a PSSA proposal to IMO
- Texts of MEPC resolutions by which fourteen PSSAs have been designated since 1990.
IMO is the only international body responsible for assessing proposals for and designating areas as PSSAs and adopting measures applicable to international shipping. This publication provides the reader with an overview of all PSSAs designated by the MEPC since 1990.
These texts were designed by the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) to assist Member Governments in preparation, identification and submission of PSSAs and to provide the MEPC with the information for a robust review method of a PSSA proposal to ensure that the revised PSSA Guidelines are fulfilled.
