Wednesday, April 01, 2009

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.

The book includes:
•    The revised MARPOL Annex VI (Regulations for the Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships), including emission limits and operational requirements
•    The NOx Technical Code 2008, which is made mandatory under MARPOL Annex VI for all marine diesel engines with a power output of 130 kW or more, and provides the requirements for the testing, survey and certification of marine diesel engines
•    Interim guidelines for application of the NOx Technical Code 2008
•    Standard specifications for shipboard incinerators.

Revised MARPOL Annex VI & NOx Technical Code 2008 (2009 Edition) is available from authorized distributors of IMO publications, and via IMO’s online bookshop.
