FileUNEP Regional Seas Reports and Studies No. 187 - Guidelines for the Placement of Artificial Reefs by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Jan 13, 2015 12:57 PM
The installation of artificial reefs can be considered to be placement under the terms of the Convention or Protocol, rather than dumping, provided such placement is not contrary to the aims of the Convention or Protocol (see section 2.1.1 for further details). Although these guidelines have been developed within the context of the London Convention and Protocol, they are, as is true for any guidelines, not legally binding on any country, whether or not it has existing national regulations. The purpose of the Guidelines is to: assist those countries that have recognized the need to assess proposals for the placement of artificial reefs on the basis of scientifically sound criteria, as well as to develop an appropriate regulatory framework; assist with the implementation of regulations in those countries where such regulations are already in place, but where there is nevertheless a need for such guidance; assist in updating existing guidelines or regulations.
