The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has submitted a list of requests to the UN's International Maritime Organization (IMO) ahead of the meeting next week in the organization's Marine Environment Protection Committee, MEPC.

The top priority on the agenda is the IMO's efforts to develop a new system for data collection about the CO2 emissions from vessels. The system was approved at the last meeting in the MEPC, and is the equivalent of the EU's MRV system, which will take effect in 2018, note the International Chamber of Shipping in a statement.
