Suggestions for Improving Vietnam Laws on Marine Environment Protection from Contamination Caused by Ship’s Garbage

Nguyen Van Truong, Pham Van Tan


Due to the fact that Vietnam legal system on marine environmental protection is still inconsistent and deficient, as focusing only on the protection of marine environment either in general or environmental pollution from oil and noxious liquid substances, but lacking a concentration on marine contamination caused by ship’s garbage. It is explained that Vietnam only joined Annexes I and II of International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973 as modified by the Protocol of 1978 (hereinafter referred to as the MARPOL 73/78), which serves as a prerequisite condition and fundament of researches and legal system on protection of marine environment. Owing to the lack of in-depth study of the issues, this article is written to describe and analyze the current status of Vietnam laws on the marine environment preservation. Moreover, suggestions for improving the Vietnam legal system on the marine protection from ship’s garbage are suggested in this paper.
