“Since the landmark decision made during MEPC 70 to implement the 0.50% sulphur limit on marine fuels in-use from 1 January 2020 for ships operating outside Sulphur Emission Control Areas (ECA-SOx), there has been a constant flow of information on various aspects of the consistent implementation of the regulation,” it says.
“Several market surveys indicate that the majority of ship owners and operators intend to comply with the MARPOL Annex VI regulation 14.1.3 by burning 0.50% Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (VLSFO).
“Lloyds Register FOBAS has been at the forefront of these discussions at various forums representing and raising concerns of our clients.”
