Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan 2018

In accordance with Regulation 22A of MARPOL Annex VI, all ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above shall collect and report data on fuel oil consumption, distance travelled and hours underway from calendar year 2019 onwards based on the methodology that will be included in the SEEMP.

 

To this end, and in consistency with regulation 22 of MARPOL Annex VI, the SEEMP shall include a description of the methodology that will be used to collect the data required (Data Collection Plan) and the processes that will be used to report the data to the ship's Administration by December 31st 2018 in order to acquire the relevant Approval.

 

Total Quality Consultants is glad to provide a general overview on the new SEEMP requirements which were introduced by the amendments to MARPOL Annex VI that were adopted in the context of the 70th session of the Marine Environment Protection Committee and entered into force on March 1st 2018.
