Singapore addresses bunkering malpractices

The Singapore Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) issued a Press Release stating that the agency will cancel the Bunker Surveyor Licences of the three bunker surveyors who pleaded guilty to charges of accepting bribes.

With the entry into force of MARPOL’s Annex VI on air pollution on 9 May 2005 only 9 months away, are we going to see the same type of response and application of the requirements of Regulation 18 in other main bunkering ports?
