During routine inspections, PSC officers are expected to focus on the SoC for IMO DCS.
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.
