The Port of Rotterdam has announced as of 1 February 2021, a bunkering license will be required for suppliers to operate at the port of Rotterdam.
The bunkering license will be mandatory for bunker ships that supply fuel oil and (bio) diesel to seagoing vessels with the aim of ensuring that bunkering operations take place in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.
The aim of implementing the license is to also promote transparency and reduce dispute cases as seen in the ports of Singapore and Gibraltar, said the port authority.
Further information regarding regulations and applications for the bunkering license is available here.
