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

The Prevention of Pollution of the Sea Order 2005 aims to prevent disposal of waste from ships, including refuse, garbage, effluents, plastics, and dangerous pollutants into Brunei waters. Section 5(1) states that ‘… if any disposal or discharge of refuse, garbage, waste matter, trade effluent, plastics or marine pollutant in packaged form occurs from any ship into Brunei Darussalam waters, the master, the owner and the agent of the ship shall each be guilty of an offence …’ (Government of Brunei Darussalam, 2005). Section 16(1) states that any direct or indirect discharge from ships of refuse, garbage, waste, plastics, effluents, and dangerous pollutants into any part of the sea or waters in Brunei shall be charged for recovery costs (Government of Brunei Darussalam, 2005).

The primary driver for this policy was political. This Order gives effect to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973, as modified and added to by the Protocol of 1978, and to other international agreements relating to the prevention, reduction and control of pollution of the sea and pollution from ships, and for matters related thereto” (Government of Brunei Darussalam, 2005). The Ports department is responsible for the administration and implementation of this Order (Government of Brunei Darussalam, 2005). There was insufficient evidence available to evaluate this policy at the time of the assessment.
