The New Maritime Paradigm: US Environmental Regulation of the Maritime Industry
Co-sponsored by K&L Gates and the Environmental Law Institute
Since 2008, the scope and extent of U.S. environmental regulation of the maritime industry has changed and expanded substantially. Air, water, and waste concerns have resulted in substantial new regulatory requirements and continued reassessment of those requirements by the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Discussed were new regulatory requirements and legislative and regulatory proposals that will shape environmental obligations of the maritime industry into the future.
