M.A.C. Technical Service Circular 08/2022: “MEDITERRANEAN SEA AS AN ECA”

At the recent MEPC 78 the proposal to designate the Mediterranean Sea as an Emission Control Area (ECA) was approved. The date of entering into force is still to be decided but, if adopted at MEPC 79, it may be as early as 2024 or 2025 and require ships navigating the Mediterranean Sea to burn fuel oils with no more than 0.10% m/m sulphur content.
