MEPC 81/INF.36: Air Pollution Prevention: Global update on scrubber (EGCS) bans and restrictions

This document summarizes a study by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) that provides an update on measures restricting the use of scrubbers in various countries and ports.
MEPC 81/5/5: Air Pollution Prevention - Regulating Black Carbon emissions from international shipping impacting the Arctic

MEPC 81/5/5: Air Pollution Prevention – Regulating Black Carbon emissions from international shipping impacting the Arctic

This document sets out suggestions for regulation to deliver "fast and immediate" action on Black Carbon (BC) emissions via a fuel switch followed by stricter emission cuts via a polar fuel standard and designation of BC emission control areas (ECAs) as a stepped approach.

MEPC 80-9-1 - Reducing Black Carbon emissions in the Arctic (1)

MEPC 80/9/1: Reducing Black Carbon emissions in the Arctic

This document responds to MEPC 80/9, the outcome of PPR 10, and the invitation for interested Member States and international organizations to work intersessionally on further developing proposals on potential Black Carbon (BC) control measures and to submit those to PPR 11. It provides additional information to support the further consideration and development of potential BC control measure proposals.
MEPC 80-9-2 - Geographic scope of Black Carbon emissions in the Arctic

MEPC 80/9/2: Geographic scope of Black Carbon emissions in the Arctic

This document responds to discussions on the geographic scope of effective Black Carbon emission reduction measures aimed at protecting the Arctic. It provides information to aid discussion and facilitate an informed determination on the geographic scope, and recommends that measures must apply to ships operating throughout the wider Arctic area.

PPR 10-6-5 – Comments on document PPR 106 with regard to the reduction of the impact on the Arctic of Black Carbon Emissions from International shipping

In this document, the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) emphasizes areas of particular interest to the ICC and the need to develop mandatory and concrete measures to urgently reduce Black Carbon emissions from shipping in the Arctic and Inuit Nunaat.
PPR 10-6-6 - Geographic scope of Black Carbon reduction measures

PPR 10-6-6 – Geographic scope of Black Carbon reduction measures

This document responds to unresolved discussions during the Correspondence Group on Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships on the geographic scope of measures (recommendatory or mandatory) aimed at reducing emissions of Black Carbon impacting the Arctic from international shipping.
