A Handy Guide to the new MARPOL documentation

The 2018 amendments to MARPOL have brought with it a new piece of documentation for Ship's funnelship’s to carry- The statement of compliance for fuel oil consumption reporting. This post gives a quick look at the requirements surrounding that statement.

Why does a statement of compliance for fuel oil consumption reporting require to be submitted?

It is required under MARPOL Regulation 22A – Collection and Reporting of Ship Fuel Oil Consumption Data.

Which ships have to hold a statement?

Ship of 5,000 gross tonnage and above.

What does the statement declare?

  • That the ship has submitted to this Administration the data required by regulation 22A of Annex VI of MARPOL
  • The data was collected and reported in accordance with the methodology and processes set out in the ship’s SEEMP

What information is shown on the statement?

  • Name of ship
  • Distinctive number or letters
  • IMO Number

What is the validity of the Statement?

Normally for the calendar year in which it is issued and for the first five months of the following calendar year.

What does MARPOL Regulation 22A require?Supply boat funnels at Dubai

  • That from the calendar year 2019, each ship of 5,000 gross tonnage and above shall collect the data on fuel consumption
  • At the end of each calendar year, the ship shall aggregate the data collected in that calendar year or portion thereof, as appropriate.
  • Within three months after the end of each calendar year, the ship shall report to its Administration or any organization duly authorized by it, the aggregated data via electronic communication and using a standardized format required by the IMO

What information is required to be submitted?

  • Identity of the ship
  • IMO number
  • Period of calendar year for which the data is submitted
  • Ship type
  • Gross tonnage

What are the key requirements of MARPOL Regulation 22A?QE2 funnel

  • From the calendar year 2019 each ship of 5,000 GRT and above shall collect fuel consumption data
  • Within 3 months of the end of each calendar year the data shall be aggregated and reported to the ship’s flag state Administration
  • The IMO will include the information in a fuel consumption data base

What is ‘E’ Waste?

Electrical and electronic equipment  including all components with the presence of material potentially hazardous to human health and/or the environment.

What is the biggest change to the garbage record book?

The Record of Garbage Discharges is now divided into two parts. Part I for the use of all ships and Part II, required for ships that carry solid bulk cargoes

The next post will look at the new certificate introduced by these changes

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

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 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.
