US Notification Process updated
The US have advised that an amended fuel oil non-availability report update has been instigated, see below for details.
USEPA – fuel oil non-availability report submittal
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) posted instructions for use of its North American Emission Control Area (ECA) Electronic Fuel Oil Non-Availability Disclosure Portal – FOND Instructions which can be seen at http://www2.epa.gov/sites/production/files/documents/fondinstructions.pdf. An owner or operator of a vessel that cannot obtain compliant fuel oil can make a fuel oil non-availability claim through submission of a Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report (FONAR). Persons wishing to submit FONARs to the EPA must now request an electronic FONAR form through FOND and must submit completed FONARs through this same electronic portal.
