Ship-to-Ship Transfer Published Documents

Role of Scottish Government and Freedom of Information:

  • The Scottish Government is not a formal consultation body for Ship-to-Ship Oil Transfer Licence applications under the Merchant Shipping (Ship-to-Ship Transfers) Regulations 2010. Therefore Scottish Government does not respond to consultations on ship-to-ship oil transfer licence applications, unless formally requested to do so by the Secretary of State for Transport.
  • Scottish Natural Heritage is the named consultation body under Section 2 of the Regulations on these matters in Scottish waters
  • Scottish Government has published records of relevant correspondence between December 2015 to the end of 2016, that clarifies our position on this reserved matter.  Personal data has been redacted in line with the Data Protection Act 1998.
