When the IMO SEEMP rules takes effect in 2013, Norden, having 40 ships in management, has committed itself to create a document for each ship which can be presented when the ships will dock.
The SEEMP (Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan) rules take effect on 1 January and imply that shipping companies must work out plans as to how every ship will be able to save fuel and targets showing when it will happen. The rules, which are optional, result in classification bureaus, who survey the ships in docks at a regular basis, being able to see the document and use it when issuing a certificate for the ship.
