Shipowners better prepared for sulphur cap than expected?
The Palau International Ship Registry (PISR) has completed a survey on the upcoming IMO 2020 sulphur regulation. During the survey, more than 44% of the member shipowners, operators and managers confirmed that they will definitely comply with the forthcoming IMO regulations.
The PISR survey was conducted over a six month period starting in April 2019 and asked shipowners, managers and operators for their views on the cap: how they intended to comply; if they believed the implementation date would change; how many vessels they owned and operated and how they felt the IMO cap would affect their businesses.
Panos Kirnidis, CEO of PISR, sees the survey results as very encouraging in terms of compliance. “Our PISR survey has shown that the industry takes these issues seriously.” The full results of the survey are now available from PISR. (fd)
