ICS: Sulphur regulations need much stronger port controls

With less than six months to go before the new sulphur emission regulations come into force, it is more than high time for joint port inspection regulations, says the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS).

There are still significant shortcomings related to how governments and states intend to ensure inspection of the new sulphur regulations in ECA zones, and it is therefore high time to sort out this matter, says the ICS.

Like other organizations and shipowners, the ICS is concerned that the lack of a joint approach and not least the lack of port state controls (PSC) for the area will lead to fraud, and that several carriers will opt to sidestep the new regulations concerning sulphur emissions, set to come into force in Northern Europe in less than six months.
