New regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping: tell us what you think
AMSA has launched a public consultation on the next stage of changes to Marine Order 97 (Marine pollution prevention – air pollution) 2013.
The updates build on work undertaken earlier in 2022 to review MO97 to ensure consistency with MARPOL Annex VI, which deals with preventing air pollution from vessels.
The updates proposed of MO97 through this review mainly look to give effect to the new short-term measure adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping by 40% by 2030, compared to 2008 levels.
To find out more about the short-term measure, including which vessels are affected, please visit our website.
The proposed changes also introduce procedures for granting exemptions to UNSP barges from certain survey and certification requirements relating to the International Air Pollution Prevention (IAPP) certificate.
You can find out more about the changes to MO97 on our website.
We encourage you to have your say by completing the feedback form on our Consultation Hub.
The consultation closes at midnight on 9 October 2022.
