2019年6 月 5 日

Applicability: shipowners, ship operators, ship managers and shipbuilders



Further to Class News 02/2019, new IMO guidelines have been published for the consistent implementation of its 0.50% global fuel sulphur limit reduction, which enters into force on 1 January 2020.



The guidelines, which can be found here, were agreed at the 74th session of the IMO's Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 74), held on 13-17 May.

新指南于5月13日至17日举行的IMO海洋环境保护委员会第74届会议(MEPC 74)上达成一致。可点击此网页链接查阅。


Relevant sections of the guidelines are intended to be used by Flag States and Port States, shipowners and operators, shipbuilders and fuel oil suppliers. They cover:


  • implementation plans, 实施计划,
  • impact on fuel and machinery systems, 对燃料和机械系统的影响,
  • verification issues and control mechanism and actions, 验证问题以及控制机制和行动,
  • fuel oil non-availability (including a standard format for a FONAR report), and 加不到合规油报告(包括一份标准格式的加不到合规油报告),以及
  • possible safety implications relating to fuels meeting the 0.50% limit. 符合0.50%限值可能产生的安全影响。

Lloyd's Register encourages shipowners and operators to review these guidelines in preparation for the 1 January 2020 compliance deadline. A FONAR template is available on our Sulphur 2020 web page.



MEPC 74 also agreed other guidelines, which are related to the sulphur limit reduction but not yet published by IMO, as follows:
