USCG: Implementation of MARPOL Annex VI - Revised Guidance CVC-WI-022

The USCG’s Office of Commercial Vessel Compliance (CG-CVC) has issued an updated guidance outlining how it will enforce Marpol Annex VI requirements, including the IMO 2020 Sulphur cap, within the two US. Emission Control Areas (ECA). Initial guidance on enforcement is also provided to USCG units not within either ECA. Please see ECM Maritime Services.LLC’s Client Alert 1-2020 for full details. Members are asked to note that the guidance previously provided in CG-CVC Policy Letter 12-04 Change 1 has been cancelled with immediate effect.

Members are referred to the attached Client Alert 22-2019 from ECM Maritime Services LLC for details of these Guidelines. 

If Members have any questions on these Guidelines, your usual contact at the Club would be pleased to assist you.
