California - New CARB Mandatory At-Berth Regulation

In September 2020, the Club reported on the new "At-Berth" regulation approved by the California Air Resources Board ("CARB") that year to replace the 2007 regulation. The new regulation was introduced to further reduce pollution from ocean-going vessels while docked at California's busiest ports and is due to come into force on 1 January 2023.

Members are now directed to ECM's Client Alert 1-2023 dated 6 January 2023 for a reminder of the actions Members will need to take for compliance and of the potential penalties for non-compliance. ECM's Client Alert which also has links to the Final Regulation, CARB's interim Evaluation Report and updated FAQs on this regulation may be downloaded below. 

If Members have any questions relating to this notice, your usual contact at the UK P&I Club will be pleased to assist you.
