IBIA and The UK Chamber of Shipping join forces for a half day Conference at the premises of the UK Chamber Shipping, on 18 June 2019 to discuss the IMO 2020 Sulphur Cap, the so-called a once-in-a-generation disruptor to shipping’s commercial environment.
It is a conference which everyone was anticipating – less than six months before the new regulation takes effect and just after the IMO meetings where pending issues are expected to be finalized. The Conference will cover topics related to availability, enforcement, handling of new fuels, reporting of compliance issues and mitigation of safety issues, fuel disputes, scrubber installations and discharge of open loop wash water. We have designed this conference to help shipowners get up to speed on everything they need to know to ensure compliance with the regulation. It will also provide the opportunity to those attending to exchange views on challenges and how others are preparing.
Further details on speakers and the agenda will be sent out soon. A networking drinks reception will be held following the event.
