Israel : age restriction on tankers

West of England's correspondents, M Dizengoff & Co Ltd., have advised that the Israeli Ministry of Transport has introduced a maximum age for tankers entering territorial water with effect from 18th February 2003. Regulation 15(a), Israeli Regulations of Shipping and Ports (Safety of Navigation 1982) states that tankers 25 years of age and above and carrying persistent oils as cargo will not be permitted to enter Israeli territorial waters in the Mediterranean. An age restriction of 20 years and above has been introduced for tankers entering the port of Eilat in the Gulf of Aqaba. Persistent oils include, but are not limited to, crude, heavy and lube oil. There are no age restrictions on tankers carrying non-persistent oils as cargo.
