As already been informed through our Circular C17048, the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), at its seventieth session, adopted resolution MEPC.278(70) with amendments to MARPOL Annex VI on data collection system for fuel oil consumption of ships, which entered into force on 1 March 2018.
In accordance with Regulation 22.2 of MARPOL Annex VI, on or before 31 December 2018, all ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above, shall have an approved data collection plan, the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) Part II that includes a description of the methodology that will be used to collect the data required by regulation 22A of MARPOL Annex VI and the process that will be used to report the data to the ship’s Administration. The SEEMP Part II must be developed in accordance with resolution MEPC.282(70) that includes guidelines for the development of a data collection plan.
