Maritime risk management organization RightShip has asked operators of vessels of over 8,000 dwt to confirm their compliant fuel choices and ship implementation plans in a new compliance assessment.

As explained, the move comes in an effort to support improved industry management of risk and safety ahead of the implementation of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2020 sulphur cap.

Information gathered will be displayed on a per-vessel basis in RightShip’s vetting platform Qi, improving the accessibility of compliance pathway data for owners and charterers and helping the industry to manage new safety risks arising from the new global regulation, according to the company.

After January 1, 2020, any serious incidents, detentions or non-compliance related to the regulation will also be highlighted on the platform.

“Complying with IMO 2020 brings a host of technical and operational risks that all of the industry needs to be aware of. It is therefore vital that all parties – ranging from ship owners, managers and charterers – have a full understanding of how compliance is being managed across a fleet,” Martin Crawford-Brunt, CEO, RightShip, said.

“This temperature check will provide a means for vessel owners and managers to communicate their transition plan and their chosen compliance pathway.”
