Maritime Authority: Sulfur cheating not as serious as projected

"We are positively surprised," says the Danish Maritime Authority six months after the international sulfur directive was implemented.

"Like the industry and others, we harbored a degree fear that there would be a widespread trend among carriers in terms of not complying with the regulations, and we can now note that these suspicions have been put to shame," Anne Skov Strüver, head of Maritime Regulations and Crewing at the Danish Maritime Authority, tells ShippingWatch.
