U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Key Facts New Vessel General Permit (VGP) guidelines

  • December 19 2013, new Vessel General Permit (VGP) requirements defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) went into effect.
  • The new VGP requirements impacts all commercial vessels longer than 79 feet and impose strict limits on incidental discharges (including lubricants) for vessels operating within three nautical miles of U.S. coastlines and in the Great Lakes.
  • Seals and equipment need to be maintained to regulation standards, with fines for non-compliance.
  • Affected marine applications include; stern tubes, controllable pitch propellers, stabilisers, rudders, thrusters, azipods, wire ropes and towing notch interfaces.
  • It is recommended that deck equipment uses EAL oils if there is a risk of leakage running overboard.
  • The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides more detail on the requirements and recommended resources for additional information.
