IG - PSC - ECA - Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang implement ECA requirements at all ports
From 1 September 2017, in Jiangsu and Zhenjiang provinces, the requirement of all ships at berth (1 hour after arrival and before departure are excluded) using low sulphur bunker (not exceeding 0.5%mm) is geographically expanded from the major ports to all ports within these two provinces. As a result, all ports in Yangtze River Delta as shown in attached map and all ports in Zhejiang, i.e. 3 sea ports (Jiaxing, Ningbo-Zhou Shan and Taizhou) have implemented the low sulphur rule. Please kindly refer to free English translation of the official notices and be guided accordingly.
