(www.MaritimeCyprus.com) The US Coast Guard issued Guidance on the implementation of its compliance/enforcement policy for MARPOL Annex VI Regulation 14, including the IMO 2020 sulfur cap.
This guidance is not a substitute for applicable legal requirements, nor is it itself a rule. It is not intended to nor does it impose legally binding requirements on any party. It represents the Coast Guard’s current thinking on this topic and may assist industry, mariners, the public, and the Coast Guard, as well as other federal and state regulators, in applying statutory and regulatory requirements.
It is particularly useful for Shipowners and Ship Managers with vessels trading in the US.
