2020 Sulphur Compliance

ICS Guidance on Implementation of 2020 Global Sulphur Cap - September 2018

To help shipping companies prepare for implementation of the UN IMO global sulphur cap for ships’ fuel oil, ICS with the support of the Asian Shipowners' Association (ASA) and the European Community Shipowners' Associations (ECSA), 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.
