When the meeting of the IMO's Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) begins next week, 157 documents will be discussed. One of these is the International Bunker Industry Association's (IBIA) proposal aimed at creating a decent and honest bunker market - a market that according to Chairman Jens Maul Jørgensen is currently characterized by so poor bunker quality that he points to a "lack of respect" in an interview with ShippingWatch.

The Chairman of the IMO's MEPC, Arsenio Dominguez, stresses to ShippingWatch that he cannot comment on the paper submitted by the IBIA to IMO, but he explains that it is generally difficult for the IMO to handle commercial matters, which includes matters such as the bunker trade, though adding that this matter will be discussed next week.
