The meeting of experts on the South Asian Seas Regional Programme was rescheduled for 1 to 5 December 1986 in Bangkok, with a view to considering the legal, institutional and financial aspects of the action plan in the area. The meeting adopted a draft Action Plan which envisages, inter alia, the following: • strengthening of national capabilities to prevent, control and combat marine pollution and of; • cooperation in implementing and enforcing relevant international agreements; • strengthening of national capabilities and cooperation in responding to marine pollution emergencies which pose a significant threat of pollution to the marine and coastal environment.

The OECD has an Environment Committee which promotes protection of the environment. The headquarters are in Paris at the Chateau de la Muette. At the OECD Council Meeting in June 1986, a Decision on Exports of Hazardous Wastes from the OECD area was adopted. This legally binding instrument establishes the obligation for the 23 Member Countries to monitor and control exports of hazardous wastes for disposal at sea and to prohibit such exports in appropriate instances. The OECD recommended in particular that exports should be forbidden when the proposed disposal is not in conformity with applicable international law or is not performed in an environmentally sound manner.

The draft resolution envisages greater cooperation in the conduct of investigations and in the exchange of relevant information when a maritime casualty occurs to affect the interests of more than one flag state. The Committee also encouraged greater cooperation in informal inquiries into casualties where more than one state had a substantial interest. There was considerable support for this initiative. However, many delegations required additional time to examine the draft. It was thus decided to postpone consideration until the 58th session in October 1987.
