Condition assessment scheme for Category 1 oil tankers

The IMO has issued MEPC Circ. 416 of 3 June 2004 clarifying that oil tankers classified under MARPOL as Category 1 that are due to complete their Condition Assessment Scheme (CAS) prior to 5 April 2005 need not complete CAS as such tankers will be phased out on 5 April 2005 upon entry into force on that date of the revised regulation 13G of MARPOL Annex I.
