Friday, August 07, 2009

Effective 6 August 2009, ABS is authorized to act on behalf of the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) for verifying compliance by U.S.-flag vessels with MARPOL 73/78 Annex VI. Acting as a Recognized Organization, the class society can now issue the International Air Pollution Prevention (IAPP) Certificate, required by MARPOL, on behalf of the USCG, to US-flag vessels that meet the criteria.
