Marpol vi


#1

I understand the President signed MARPOL VI (air emissions) into law this week. But the bill lets the EPA issue the IAPP (similar to your IOPP for oil). That seems like a Congressional stab at the Coast Guard. Is the EPA going to send marine inspectors from their Dallas office to visit every vessel in the Gulf over 400GT?<br><br>Sec. 5) Permits only the Administrator (the Administrator) of the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and no other person, to issue
Engine International Air Pollution Prevention certificates in
accordance with Annex VI and the International Maritime Organization’s
Technical Code on Control of Emissions of Nitrogen Oxides from Marine
Diesel Engines, on behalf of the United States for a documented U.S.
vessel.
