Anti-fouling systems are coatings, treatments or devices that keep the hulls of ships free from the attachment of unwanted organisms. In response to a recognized need to control the environmental impact of harmful substances used in anti-fouling systems, in 2001 the International Maritime Organization adopted the International Convention on the Control of Harmful Anti-fouling Systems on Ships (AFS Convention), which has been in force since 2008.

This third edition of the AFS Convention publication includes the updated text of the AFS Convention, including the amendments to annexes 1 and 4 concerning the introduction of controls on cybutryne and other consequential amendments that entered into force on 1 January 2023, and the revised guidelines that support the implementation of the amended Convention.
