Reviewed under framework: No - insufficient evidence
Key findings: Insufficient evidence to review

The Prevention of Pollution of the Sea (Garbage) Regulations 2008, especially Section 4(1), specifies plastic discharge prohibition, covering all plastics, including but not limited to synthetic ropes, synthetic fishing nets, and plastic garbage bags. These regulations also make provisions for the disposal of garbage inside and outside special areas, restriction on Brunei Darussalam ships entering Antarctic area, garbage reception facilities, garbage management plan and garbage record book. The primary driver for this policy was political. These regulations give effect to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, MARPOL (Government of Brunei Darussalam, 2008). The Minister of Communications is responsible for the implementation of this Order (Government of Brunei Darussalam, 2008). There was insufficient evidence available to evaluate this policy at the time of the assessment.
