IMO Bunker Delivery Note Amendments Enter into Force as Sulphur 2020 Requirement Looms

Amendments to the bunker delivery note relating to the supply of marine fuel oil to ships that have fitted alternative mechanisms to address Sulphur emission requirements entered into force on 1 January. The amendment enters into force as the shipping industry counts down to January 2020, when the limit for sulphur in fuel oil will be reduced to 0.50% m/m outside emission control areas from the current 3.5%. The new limit under IMO’s MARPOL treaty will have significant benefits for the environment and human health.
