Saving fuel to save the environment

This certificate forms the second aspect of reducing air pollution, that is reducing fuel consumption.

Why is it required?

It is required by regulation 5.4 of Annex VI of MARPOL.

What information is contained on the certificate?

Particulars of ship

  • Name of ship
  • Distinctive number or letters
  • Port of registry
  • Gross tonnage
  • IMO Number

Dates of Survey

What does it certify?

That the ship has been surveyed in accordance with regulation 5.4 of Annex VI of the Convention; and That the survey shows that the ship complies with the applicable requirements in regulation 20, regulation 21 and regulation 22.

What must be attached to the certificate?

Supplement to the International Energy Efficiency Certificate, a Record of construction relating to energy efficiency.

Supplement to the International Energy Efficiency Certificate

A Record of construction relating to energy efficiency.

What is contained in the supplement?

Particulars of ship

  • Name of ship
  • IMO number
  • Date of building contract
  • Gross tonnage
  • Deadweight
  • Type of ship

Propulsion system

  • Diesel propulsion
  • Diesel-electric propulsion
  • Turbine propulsion
  • Hybrid propulsion
  • Propulsion system other than any of the above

Attained Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI)

The Attained EEDI is:     grams-CO2/tonne-mile

A statement on why the Attained EEDI is not calculated:

  • The ship is exempt under regulation 20.1 as it is not a new ship as defined in regulation  2.23
  • The type of propulsion system is exempt in accordance with regulation 19.3
  • The requirement of regulation 20 is waived by the ship’s Administration in accordance with regulation 19.4
  • The type of ship is exempt in accordance with regulation 20.1

Required EEDI

  • Required EEDI is:       grams-CO2/tonne-mile
  • Or a statement on why the  EEDI is not applicable as:
    • The ship is exempt under regulation 21.1 as it is not a new ship as defined in regulation 2.23
    • The type of propulsion system is exempt in accordance with regulation 19.3
    • The requirement of regulation 21 is waived by the ship’s Administration in accordance with regulation 19.4
    • The type of ship is exempt in accordance with regulation 21.1
    • The ship’s capacity is below the minimum capacity threshold in Table 1 of regulation 21.1

Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan

A statement that the ship is provided with a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) in compliance with regulation 22

EEDI technical file

  • A statement that the IEE Certificate is accompanied by the EEDI technical file in compliance with regulation 20.1
  •  The EEDI technical file identification/verification number
  • The EEDI technical file verification date

What is a technical file?

A Technical File is a record containing all details of parameters, including component and settings of an engine, which may influence the NOx emission of the engine, in accordance with 2.4 of the NOx TECHNICAL CODE (2008).

What is EEDI?

Energy Efficiency Design Index, a specific figure for an individual ship design, expressed in grams of carbon dioxide (CO2) per ship’s capacity-mile (the smaller the EEDI the more energy efficient ship design) and is calculated by a formula based on the technical design parameters for a given ship.
