This IMO publication presents the revised MARPOL Annex VI, Regulations for the prevention of air pollution from ships, including chapter 3 requirements for control of emissions from ships, and a new chapter 4, Regulations on energy efficiency for ships (that entered into force on 1 January 2013). Chapter 4 makes mandatory the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), for new ships, and the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) for all ships.

The updated text includes additional definitions, the requirements for survey and certification for chapter 4, the format for the International Energy Efficiency Certificate (IEEC), and the following guidelines that will support uniform implementation of the EEDI and SEEMP:

  • 2012 Guidelines on the method of calculation of the attained Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for new ships

  • 2012 Guidelines for the development of a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP)

  • 2012 Guidelines on survey and certification of the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI); and Guidelines for calculation of reference lines for use with Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI)

  • the updated NOx Technical Code 2008, which includes amendments relating to engines not pre-certified on a test bed and to NOx-reducing devices

  • amendments on regional arrangements for port reception facilities under MARPOL Annex VI.

 

This publication will be of use to maritime administrations, classification societies, shipping companies (owners and operators), education institutes (schools and universities), engine and equipment manufacturers and others with an interest in prevention of air pollution from ships and technical and operational measures to improve the energy efficiency of ships.

List of notifications by parties under MARPOL Annex VI

A​​s a specialized agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.  

In other words, its role is to create a level playing-field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.

Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. And IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
