In January 1959, IMO began to maintain and promote the 1954 OILPOL Convention. Recently, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) announced their commitment to lower the allowed percentage of SOx under the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) on January 1, 2020, which shipowners may find difficult to comply with.

New regulations putting in place lower caps on sulphur emissions (SOx) will bring challenges to the marine industry. Under the guidance of IMO, the convention was amended in 1962, 1969, and 1971. As oil trade and industry developed, many people in the industry began to recognise a need … IMO targets 2050 to reduce greenhouse gases.

IMO NOx regulation. According to the IMO, limiting SOx emissions from ships will improve air quality in port cities and coastal areas, and protect the environment. Put forward by the UN’s International Maritime Organisation, Tier III of the IMO NOx regulations aims to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx) by approximately 70 per cent compared with the current Tier II standards. In October 2016, the IMO introduced two new NOx Emission Control Areas: the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. NOx pollution standards have been set on every type of motor vehicle and on stationary industrial units. The "roadmap" calls for a fourth and fifth round of IMO greenhouse gas studies from 2019-2022, which would be carried out before creating any regulations.
