A new publication is now available from IMO Publications on the revised international regulations on preventing and reducing harmful emissions from ships, such as sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter.

The revised MARPOL Annex VI (Regulations for the Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships) and the revised NOx Technical Code 2008 were adopted by IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee in October 2008, with an entry into force date of 1 July 2010.

The Revised MARPOL Annex VI & NOx Technical Code 2008 (2009 Edition) is an essential publication for  maritime Administrations, classification societies, shipping companies (owners and operators), educational institutes, engine and equipment manufacturers and others with an interest in the prevention of air pollution from ships.
