What is the proper procedure where a MARPOL-compliant Bunker Delivery Note or representative sample cannot be obtained, e. g. at a port in a State which is not a Party to MARPOL Annex VI?

Where the BDN or representative sample as required by regulation VI/18 are not in compliance with the relevant requirements, the master or crew should have documented that fact. (MEPC. 129(53))
