BIMCO and IBIA Electronic Bunkering Guide

Thursday, November 04, 2010

BIMCO, in partnership with the International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA), has launched a new bunkering guide designed primarily for use by ships’ crew.

BIMCO Asia Liaison Officer Thomas Timlen, and IBIA Chief Executive Ian Adams released the BIMCO and IBIA Bunkering Guide on October 27 to delegates in Singapore attending the 16th Singapore International Bunkering Conference. A limited number of hard copies of the electronic guide were offered to delegates, who learned how the guide will provide general information and guidance on, among other things, the expanding regulatory regime affecting the bunkering industry.

Ian Adams explained to delegates, “In today’s market, the bunkering of ships is an intensive, highly regulated and quality-based operation which demands ships’ crew to be highly focused on quality assurance and environmental risk. This guide will help those involved in the bunkering process to act in compliance with industry regulations and best practice.”

BIMCO and IBIA first visited the idea of a guide in 2009, when they identified a gap in available resources to address best practice and industry compliance. The BIMCO and IBIA Bunkering Guide is an accumulation of BIMCO’s and IBIA’s combined experience, industry standing, and status as Non-Governmental Organisations at IMO.
 
BIMCO and IBIA recognize that detailed guidelines, instructions and procedures are readily available in ships’ Safety Management Systems (SMS), the Shipboard Oil Pollution Emergency Plan (SOPEP) and/or the Shipboard Marine Pollution Emergency Plan (SMPEP). But they are confident that this new guide will enhance and support the general knowledge of ship personnel.

The BIMCO and IBIA Bunkering Guide will be available on the BIMCO and IBIA websites to download and print. IBIA members will also receive a hard copy of the guide.
