The Singapore Shipping Association (SSA) on Tuesday (2 July) issued the “IMO Sulphur Cap 2020 Readiness Plan” for Singapore’s shipping community.
The document provides an overview of the key requirements of the IMO 2020 global sulphur cap, outlines the major preparatory milestones in the lead up to January 2020, and presents key compliance measures.
“The Singapore Shipping Association has been conducting a series of dialogues, workshops, and seminars to help the maritime community in Singapore anticipate and prepare for changes stemming from the IMO 2020 cap on sulphur oxides emissions from ships,” said Caroline Yang, President of SSA.
“The readiness plan has been designed as a handy tip sheet that presents the key information in an accessible and practical way tailored to the shipping community.
“SSA will continue to work with partners and regulators to prepare the industry for these and other policy changes from IMO.”
