Reminder: First IMO DCS statement of compliance shall be onboard

From 31st May 2020, a valid Statement of Compliance (SoC) for IMO DCS must be readily available onboard for inspection, together with the Confirmation of Compliance (CoC) for the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) part II. During routine inspections, PSC officers are expected to focus on the SoC for IMO DCS.

European Commission study suggests three short-term measures to reduce shipping emissions

A study led by CE Delft and UMAS, funded by the European Commission, analyzes potential short-term measures listed in the International Maritime Organization’s initial strategy on the reduction of GHG emissions from ships. According to the report, both speed limits and operational efficiency standards will require most ships to decrease their speed if the 2030 CO2-intensity ambition is to be met.
