COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2022/89

of 21 January 2022

laying down rules for the application of Directive (EU) 2019/883 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the method to be used for the calculation of sufficient dedicated storage capacity

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Directive (EU) 2019/883 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 April 2019 on port reception facilities for the delivery of waste from ships, amending Directive 2010/65/EU and repealing Directive 2000/59/EC (1), and in particular Article 7(4), second subparagraph, thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 7(4), points (a) and (b), of Directive (EU) 2019/883 establishes an exception from the general obligation to deliver all waste carried on board to the port of call for ships that have sufficient dedicated storage capacity for all waste that has been accumulated and will be accumulated during their intended voyage until the next port of call.

(2)

By applying the calculation method defined in this Regulation, Member States should be able to implement the exceptions from the general obligation to deliver all waste carried on board with respect to availability of sufficient storage space in a harmonised way.

(3)

The calculation method should not be applied to waste disposal under Annex II to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (‘MARPOL Convention’). As set out in Annex II to the MARPOL Convention, waste disposal is regulated by the MARPOL Convention and the delivery of such waste is either mandatory at the port where cargo is unloaded before a new cargo is loaded or discharge at sea is permitted under certain conditions. Depending on the substance, delivery of cargo residues regulated by Annex II to the MARPOL Convention is mandatory before departure, subject to the procedures and control established under Regulations 13 and16 of that Annex. Cargo residues under Annex II to the MARPOL Convention containing category X substances, high-viscosity persistent floating Y substances and high-viscosity or solidifying Y substances, are regulated by mandatory pre-wash and requirements to deliver such waste in a port reception facility set out in Regulations 13 and 16 of Annex II to the MARPOL Convention.

(4)

The calculation method should not be applied to passively fished waste. Dedicated storage for this type of waste on board does not always exist and delivery of all passively fished waste is incentivised by the cost recovery system set out in Article 8(2), point (d), of Directive (EU) 2019/883.

(5)

In order to provide for uniform conditions for the application of the exemptions to the waste delivery obligation set out in Article 7(4), points (a) and (b), of Directive (EU) 2019/883, it is indispensable that Member States apply a harmonised methodology. Implementing acts adopted pursuant to Directive (EU) 2019/883 should therefore take the form of implementing regulations.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Safe Seas and Prevention of Pollution from Ships,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1.   Member States shall calculate the sufficient dedicated storage capacity for the application of Article 7(4), points (a) and (b), and Article 9 of Directive (EU) 2019/883 by using the method set out in Annex I to this Regulation.

2.   For the purpose of verifying the information provided in accordance with Annex 2 to Directive (EU) 2019/883, by estimating the on-board generation of different waste types, Member States shall take into account the waste generation rates set out in Annex II to this Regulation.

3.   In addition to the waste generation rates set out in Annex II to this Regulation, Member States may use one or both of the following criteria to determine estimates for the on-board generation of different waste types:

(a)

historic records for generated waste, based on advance waste notification forms and waste delivery receipts available for the ship in question;

(b)

on-board inspections obtaining information on previous waste generation rates, details of on-board waste management and equipment specific or trading area specific information affecting the actual waste generation rate.

Article 2

The method for calculating the sufficient dedicated storage capacity, set out in Annex I to this Regulation, shall not be applicable to the following waste types:

(a)

waste types under Annex II to the MARPOL Convention;

(b)

passively fished waste.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 21 January 2022.

For the Commission

The President

Ursula VON DER LEYEN

ANNEX I

Calculation method for sufficient dedicated waste storage capacity

1.

The method uses an arithmetic calculation based on the estimated amounts of waste retained on board in relation to the maximum dedicated storage capacity.

2.

The Used Waste Capacity (‘UWC’), estimated at the time of sending the advance waste notification to the port of call and expressed as a percentage of the maximum dedicated storage capacity, shall not exceed a predefined threshold.

3.

The UWC shall be calculated with the following formula:

Image 1

4.

The UWC shall comply with the following condition:

UWC (%) < Threshold

Where:

A is the estimated amount of waste type to be retained on board at the time of departure from the port of call (expressed in m3);

M is the Maximum dedicated storage capacity (expressed in m3);

Threshold is the value set out in Table 1, for the corresponding type of waste and next port of call.

5.

For the purpose of using the calculation method for sufficient dedicated waste storage capacity, the following shall apply:

(a)

Port of call, as indicated in the advance waste notification form set out in Annex 2 to Directive (EU) 2019/883, is the port where the ship is heading and where the advanced waste notification is sent to, in accordance with Article 6 of Directive (EU) 2019/883;

(b)

Next port of call is the port to be called after departure, as indicated in point 2.5 of the advance waste notification form set out in Annex 2 to Directive (EU) 2019/883;

(c)

The amount indicated in the sixth column ‘Estimated amount of waste to be generated between notification and next port of call’ of point 3 of the advance waste notification form set out in Annex 2 to Directive (EU) 2019/883 refers to waste generated and intended to be disposed at a port reception facility. Amounts that may be legally discharged shall not be included in the reported value.

6.

The ‘Group of Additional Selected Ports’ includes those ports that are to be considered as EU-ports for the purpose of the application of the thresholds set out in Table 1. The ports included in this group are all ports located in: Iceland, Norway, United Kingdom (including Isle of Man, Channel Islands and Gibraltar) and Russian ports located in the Baltic Sea.

7.

During the first two years of application of this Regulation, the UWC as calculated in the third paragraph of this Annex may be treated as indicative for the following cargo residues waste types:

(a)

MARPOL Annex I – Oil: Oily tank washings;

(b)

MARPOL Annex I – Oil: Dirty Ballast Water;

(c)

MARPOL Annex V – Garbage: Cargo Residues (HME);

(d)

MARPOL Annex V – Garbage: Cargo Residues (non-HME).

(2)  Evaporation of the water fraction in oil sludge is a process that must be carefully managed and should only be done to the extent to allow combustibility of the sludge intended for incineration.
