Cummins Awards ABS ERO Status for Diesel Engine Certification Worldwide

April 23, 2007

Cummins (CMI) Inc. has selected ABS as a Recognized Organization for engines (ERO). In that role ABS will be able to issue Engine International Air Pollution Prevention Certificates (EIAPP) to Cummins machinery for compliance with IMO’s MARPOL Annex VI NOx Technical Code governing NOx emissions of ship based diesel engines with power output over 130 kW. ABS has been actively assisting owners to obtain the EIAPP certificates required by the air emissions pollution prevention control regulations established by the IMO in this Annex. In particular, ABS has provided guidance for compliance with nitrogen oxide (NOx) requirements for owners seeking NOx engine certification.

To simplify the process, ABS has created a totally electronic handling system for issuing EIAPP certificates through its proprietary engineering plan review software system. A module within this program allows ABS engineers reviewing an engine’s technical file to handle all the necessary reviews, approvals and correspondence electronically. ABS surveyors have electronic access to the information they need for the initial pre-certification survey at the engine manufacturing facility and subsequent issuance of the EIAPP certificate
