What could be the consequence of failure to send a Waste Notification as required by the Port Waste Regulations?

As advised in MGN 358, an Infringement report received by the MCA from a Port Waste Management Plan holder will result in an MCA surveyor being sent to inspect the vessel and take appropriate action, which may include serving a Port State Control or Detention Notice on the vessel or a Prohibition Notice to prevent loading or unloading of the vessel. If the vessel has already sailed, or a Surveyor cannot attend, MCA will request an inspection at the vessel’s next port of call in the UK or in the Paris MoU region.
