Implementing measures development by IMO on the global sulphur cap introduction as of 1 January 2020
On 27 October 2016 IMO’s 70th Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) confirmed to implement the 0.50%wt. global sulphur limit outside of Emission Control Areas (ECAs) as of 1 January 2020.
Concerns raised about the implementation of the global sulphur cap, led to a request from MEPC70 to consider a work item proposal by the Pollution Prevention and Response (PPR) subcommittee to develop justified additional measures that may be developed to promote consistent implementation of the 0.50%wt. global sulphur limit.
