International shipping association Baltic and International Maritime Council (BIMCO) and International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) has been updated and is now available to members.
The pamphlet is meant to provide a handy and easy guide to help seafarers involved in bunkering operations.
“Bunkering is a vital and critical ship operation and requires due care to ensure safety and to mitigate the risk of pollution,” says IBIA.
“The guide provides general information, advice and guidance to help seafarers involved in bunkering operations act in compliance with the appropriate regulations and industry best practices.”
Besides a general update on different fuel types and regulations since the last BIMCO & IBIA Bunkering Guide, the latest version of the pamphlet also expands on fuel oil sampling and Bunker Delivery Notes, it notes.
Interested parties wishing to obtain a PDF and/or a hard copy of the pamphlet may contact Tara Morjaria on: email@example.com
