    Abstract

    Marine environment is of fundamental importance for China. Due to changed legal situation and deteriorating marine environment, China adopted the new Regulation on the prevention and control of vessel-source pollution in 2009. The Regulation greatly expands and improves the domestic legal regime with 9 chapters and 78 clauses. Moreover, it is also a better implementation of relevant international conventions that China has ratified. However, complementary work still needs to be done in the near future.
