QUESTIONS/ANSWERS AND CLARIFICATION – IMO MEPC 46 SESSION – PHASE OUT OF SINGLE HULL TANKERS

The new amendments to Regulation 13G of MARPOL Annex I have been circulated in the extraordinary issue of Weekly NEWS on 30 April. Since then, the INTERTANO Secretariat has received a number of telephone calls with pertinent questions and requests for clarification.

Some aspects of the new Regulation 13G which are unclear and confusing have been addressed and are available on the web site. Please click here to link to the clarifications.  

We encourage the membership to study the amendments to 13G with respect to their own fleet.  If you have any questions or observations, please contact INTERTANKO’s Technical Director, Dragos Rauta by e-mail: dragos.rauta@intertanko.com 

Within the coming months, the Secretariat plans to issue a booklet with explanatory notes on the new amendments to 13G together with a statistical overview of the practical implications of these amendments for the current single hull tanker fleet.
