The 2008 Vessel General Permit (VGP) regulates discharges incidental to the normal operation of vessels operating in a capacity as a means of transportation. Those vessels greater than 300 gross tons or more or those which have the ability to hold or discharge more than 8 cubic meters of ballast must submit an NOI in order to receive permit coverage.
