The IMO Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), which starts on 31 March, will seek to make progress on the development of a global system of monitoring and reporting of CO2 emissions from ships. This is supported by the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) which has made a detailed submission on the issue to the MEPC meeting on behalf of its member national shipowners’ associations.

Preliminary comments on proposed changes to the OECD model tax convention dealing with the operation of ships and aircraft in international traffic
In summary, the international shipping industry is broadly satisfied with the status quo with respect to the current text of the Convention, including Article 8. However, with respect to the current text of Article 15, opinions within the shipping industry appear to differ. ICS is cautious about commenting on proposed changes whose wider implications are difficult to fully understand, despite having been carefully studied by our members. ICS therefore suggests that the proposed changes to the OECD Model Convention need to be subjected to a far more comprehensive review.
The international shipping industry is firmly committed to playing its part in reducing emissions of CO2 and other Green House Gases. This brochure, produced by ICS to coincide with the UNFCCC Climate Change Conference in Lima (COP 20), explains the issues involved and the progress being made by the industry and its global regulator - the IMO - to reduce ships’ CO2 emissions.
