When the new Marine order 97 comes into effect (expected to be on 1 January 2023), new or replacement engines with a power output above 130kW installed on DCVs must comply with the NOx emission standards, and a valid EIAPP certificate and technical file will need to be kept on board.
To make it easier for vessel owners to comply with these requirements, Marine order 97 will require that suppliers of these marine diesel engines provide an EIAPP certificate and technical file for each marine diesel engine with a power output more than 130kw sold for installation in Australia.
Exemption 44 will be in place until these long-term measures are given effect in the revised Marine order 97, expected to be on 1 January 2023.
Vessels built overseas and delivered under their own propulsion or intending to undertake an overseas voyage (for example, for dry-docking), must carry on board an EIAPP certificate and technical file for each installed engine with a power output of more than 130kW. There is no exemption from this requirement.
