IMO 2020 Sulphur Cap

As of 1st January, 2020, amendments to MARPOL have brought in a global sulphur cap of 0.50%. This regulatory change, although undoubtedly a positive one for the marine environment, nevertheless brings with it significant commercial, financial, legal and practical implications for owners and charterers alike.  

In the lead-up to 2020, we have guided our Members as to how best to prepare for the transition, in both contractual and practical terms.  Now that the new regulations are in force and the sulphur cap has become a reality, we are closely monitoring the emerging issues and will continue to provide guidance to Members to ensure a smooth transition into 2020. 

In this dedicated section of our website, we offer a series of focused bulletins as well as resources and external industry guidance for the benefit of our Members.  

Members are invited to sign up here to receive access to our regular updates.
