India’s Directorate General of Shipping on Monday (8 March) withdrew bunker supplier registration certificates issued to 10 companies for violating statutory provisions.
According to the circular issued by the department, it had issued notices to the companies on 21 December 2020 requesting their compliance.
The Directorate General of Shipping quoted part of the notice as follows:
Certificate issued as above shall cease to be valid, if the Bunker Supplier fails to carry out an annual surveillance audit within three months, before or after each anniversary date. The verification report has to be forwarded to the Directorate, on completion of the audit for records.
The above provisions was provided so that the companies could have acted proactively to comply with statutory provision,” reads the circular released by the Directorate General of Shipping.
However the companies have failed to do so and hence the competent authority has decided to withdraw the bunker registration certificates of the companies as per attached list Annexure-l.
As a result, following 10 companies have had their bunker supplier registration certificates withdrawn:
