In 1995, Greenpeace International protested the proposed ocean dumping of the offshore installation, Brent Spar. This protest prompted a strong public reaction which in turn led to the recycling of the Brent Spar on land and also to a reconsideration of the relevant legal regime under the OSPAR Convention. In July 1998, the OSPAR Commission meeting at the ministerial level adopted a ban on the disposal of offshore oil and gas installations at sea. Since that time, there have been further developments at the global, regional and national level. This article examines these developments at the OSPAR Commission, at the European Parliament, by the Scientific Group of the London Convention 1972, and in the United Kingdom, which is now implementing the OSPAR decision in its national regulatory regime.
