Revision of MARPOL Annex VI - Industry Submission to IMO

The joint submission by the International Chamber of Shipping, BIMCO, INTERCARGO, the International Council of Cruise Lines and INTERTANKO recommends that revision of MARPOL Annex I "should be done on a scientific basis and with sufficient time allowed for rigorous investigation before adoption". The industry also requires that the review process should address difficulties encountered by ships due to lack of ratification by many IMO member States and, in some cases poor quality bunker deliveries and lack of proper documentation as required by MARPOL Annex VI.
