Where do I discharge scrubber waste?

There may be logistical difficulties in arranging scrubber waste disposal from all types of scrubbers where reception facilities on the ship’s trading route are unavailable or inadequate. IMO maintains a database of reception facilities as part of its Global Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS  ). 

Owners may ask their flag State to access this database in case of any doubt as to the availability of such facilities and/or check with local agents.
