Jamie Wallace, Legal Director and Jonathan Clark, Senior Claims Executive, of The Standard Club on Friday (17 January) published a news update on IMO 2020 compliance instructions from the UAE Federal Transport Authority (FTA):
The UAE Federal Transport Authority (FTA) circular No 11 2019 provides that from 1 January 2020 all UAE flagged and foreign flagged vessels entering UAE waters are to use fuel oil with a sulphur content not exceeding 0.50% m/m.
Exemptions apply to vessels using alternative measures such as the exhaust gas cleaning system or other fuels that comply with the required emission levels.
Vessels using non-compliant fuel oil must submit a Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report (FONAR) before departing the last port and at least 48 hours before entering UAE waters.
From 1 March 2020 non-compliant vessels will be prohibited from entering UAE waters.
The FTA circular is attached here for further reference.
We thank our correspondent GAC Dubai for providing the FTA circular.
