September 2018

PDF Version


To help shipping companies prepare for implementation of the UN IMO global sulphur cap for ships’ fuel oil, the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has produced – free of charge – some comprehensive guidance on implementation planning, to help ensure compliance across the shipping industry with this regulatory game changer. The ICS guidance has been prepared for the vast majority of ships that will comply with the global sulphur cap immediately after 1 January 2020 using fuel oils with a sulphur content of 0.50% m/m or less. The ICS guide entitled “Compliance with the 2020 Global Sulphur Cap” can be read on this link.   

Our thanks to ICS for providing this document
