There is no question that authorities, worldwide, are taking a much tougher line with those who wilfully contravene the provisions of MARPOL. Cheating and deceiving is no way to conduct business. Such action undermines the hard work of every honest operator and seafarer that complies with these laws every day. It's Not Worth It! Is a programme, which deals with the illegal discharges of oily waste. If seafarers believe that they can, with impunity, continue to rig bypass pipes and falsify records, then the opening few moments of the programme will dramatically persuade them otherwise!

It highlights the many successful prosecutions that have been brought against individual seafarers and ship operators: some the result of evidence provided by whistleblowers, which have resulted in multimillion dollar fines and, in some cases, imprisonment.

Portrayed by actors and dramatised to a high level of reality, with contributions from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and the United States Coastguard (USCG), the many reasons behind illegal discharges of oily waste are exposed.

It's Not Worth It! Also suggests ways that shore based management and shipboard personnel can work together in an open and honest way.

It highlights the importance of maintaining the Oily Water Separator, recording any and every maintenance activity associated with it, and taking steps to prevent the system being tampered with. It stresses the need for records such as the Oil Record Book to be properly maintained. The package is aimed at all seafarers, shore based management, operators and ship owners.
