MARPOL Annex VI applies to all vessels, drilling rigs and other platforms and certification is mandatory on all vesselstrading internationally. It is designed to limit air pollution in many different ways. There are strict limits on emissions of oxides of nitrogen and sulphur from engines and clear rules about demonstrating compliance. Additionally, fire fighting, refrigeration and incineration systems are all subject to new regulations and limits. This programme focuses on the new emission controls for oxides of nitrogen and how these are to be introduced as a series of progressively tighter limits over time. These are mainly controlled through engine design, tuning and maintenance. oxides of sulphur and particulates are also addressed. The progressively tighter limits set for sulphur content in fuel worldwide, and the increasingly stringent limits used in Emission Control Areas (ECAs) are both outlined. Procedural guidelines for incinerator use are described and the need for training emphasised. MARPOL Annex VI also identifies the need for a written plan to limit emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds. The programme also covers new MARPOL regulations concerning the management of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS). These prohibit deliberate venting of ODS such as the freons and halons often found in air conditioning, refrigeration and fire fighting systems.Finally, the programme concludes with a summary of the issues covered and a checklist of the ways in which MARPOL regulations may be breached.
