Description: science, environmental science, chemistry Prior to 15th February 2010, dumping at sea was regulated under the Dumping at Sea Acts, 1996 to 2006. The Coastal Zone Management Division (CZMD) of the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food was charged with mplementing the provisions of these Acts i.e., permitting and enforcement of dumping at sea operations. The Foreshore and Dumping at Sea (Amendment) Act, 2009, ransferred the responsibilities for controlling dumping at sea from the CZMD to he EPA. All permit applications are now processed by the Environmental Licensing Programme of the Agency. The purpose of a Dumping at Sea permit is to regulate the dumping of material at sea. The Dumping at Sea Acts, 1996 to 2009, provide for the implementation of the requirements of international Conventions regulating the disposal of dredged materials at sea: the London Convention of 1972 (including the 1996 Protocol) and the OSPAR Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the NorthEast Atlantic), adopted in 1992. The aforementioned Acts prohibit the dumping at sea of a substance or material unless permitted by the Agency. Chemical monitoring of water quality is undertaken at dumping sites. Disposing of a substance or material at sea without a permit, or contravening the conditions of a Dumping at Sea permit, are offences under the Dumping at Sea Acts, 1996 to 2009. Offenders are liable upon conviction to a fine or imprisonment or both. The permitting process is a quasi-judicial process, the detail of which is set out in the Dumping at Sea Acts, 1996 to 2009. All applicants are advised to familiarise themselves with these statutory provisions when applying for a permit.
