The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will host a webcast on July 27 at 1:00 pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time for vessel operators required to comply with the Vessel General Permit (VGP). 

EPA will discuss the vessel Electronic-Notice of Intent (e-NOI) system to apply for coverage, as well as provide answers to a few key frequently asked questions about the permit.  Finally, industry professionals who have direct experience implementing the VGP on various classes of vessels will discuss how they are meeting the requirements of the permit.
 
The VGP applies to all commercial vessels of 79 feet in length or greater, as well as to ballast water discharges from commercial vessels regardless of length.
