COMPLIANCE ASSURANCE

MEMORANDUM
SUBJECT: Interim Guidance on the Non-Availability of Compliant Fuel Oil for the North
American
Emission Control Area

FROM: Phillip A. Brooks, Director


Air Enforcement Division

TO: OECA Mobile Source Enforcement Personnel, U.S. EPA


Captain Paul Thomas, Director, Inspections & Compliance (COMDT CG-
5PC) U.S. Coast Guard
Captain Kyle McAvoy, Chief, Commercial Vessel Compliance (COMDT CG-
CVC) U.S. Coast Guard
Attached is interim guidance addressing how the U.S. government will implement fuel oil
availability provisions for ship owners and operators unable to obtain fuel oil that meets the fuel
oil sulfur standards applicable to ships operating in waters off of the coast of North America.

The guidance provides background information on the North American Emission Control Area
fuel oil sulfur standards, explains how owners and operators of vessels can establish compliance
with these requirements, and describes how an owner or operator of a vessel who cannot obtain
compliant fuel oil can make a fuel oil non-availability claim.

The guidance will be posted on the Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance website at:
http://www.epa.gov/compliance/civil/caalcaaenfprog.html.

If you have any questions about this guidance, please contact Meetu Kaul (202-564-5472) in the
Air Enforcement Division.

Interim Guidance on the Non-Availability of Compliant Fuel Oil for the North American
Emission Control Area

June 26, 2012

Annex VI to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL)
has been in effect in the United States since January 8, 2009. MARPOL Annex VI is implemented
in the United States through the Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships (APPS). Under the authority
of APPS, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (the EPA), in consultation with the United
States Coast Guard, has promulgated regulations which incorporate by reference the full text of
MARPOL Annex VI. See 40 C.F.R. § 1043.100(a)(1).
Compliance with the MARPOL Annex VI air emission standards, including the fuel oil sulfur
standards, will significantly reduce emissions from foreign and domestic vessels that affect U.S.
air quality and impact human health. The Annex VI standards, in conjunction with the U.S. Clean
Air Act standards applicable to U.S. ships, are expected to reduce the annual emissions of
nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur oxides (SOx), and particulate matter (PM) by 1.2 million, 1.3
million, and 143,000 tons, respectively, by 2030. Annually, these reductions are estimated to
prevent between 12,000 and 30,000 PM-related premature deaths, between 210 and 920 ozone-
related premature deaths, 1,400,000 work days lost, and 9,600,000 minor restricted-activity
days.
Why is the United States government issuing this guidance?

Under Annex VI, the North American Emission Control Area (North American ECA) will
become enforceable on August 1, 2012. Beginning on that day, the sulfur content of the fuel oil
used onboard ships operating in this area may not exceed 1.00% m/m (10,000 ppm). Compliant
fuel oil is expected to be available from fuel oil suppliers that serve vessels that will operate in the
North American ECA. However, if a ship owner or operator is unable to obtain compliant fuel
oil, this document clarifies how the United States government will implement the fuel oil
availability provisions contained in Regulation 18 to Annex VI, as incorporated by reference in 40
C.F.R. § 1043.100(a)(1). This guidance is based on information available to the United
States government as of June, 2012. This guidance may be superseded at any time.

What are the geographic boundaries of the North American ECA?

The specific geographic coordinates that comprise the North American ECA are listed in the
Marine Environment Protection Committee Resolution MEPC.190(60). Available at
http://www.imo.org/Publications/Documents/Supplements%20and%20CDs/English/IA664E.pdf.
What are the MARPOL Annex VI fuel oil sulfur standards?

The MARPOL Annex VI fuel oil sulfur standards are set out in Annex VI Regulation 14 and 40
C.F.R. § 1043.60(b). The maximum sulfur content of fuel oil used in the North American ECA,

31
PROCEDURES
FOR CHANGING OVER FROM HIGH SULPHUR FUEL OIL
TO LOW SULPHUR FUEL OIL
which becomes enforceable on August 1, 2012, will be limited as follows:

1.00% m/m (10,000 ppm ) from August 1, 2012 to December 31, 2014
0.10% m/m (1,000 ppm) on and after January 1, 2015.

Which vessels are required to comply with the Annex VI ECA fuel oil sulfur standard while
operating in the North American ECA?

With limited exceptions, including for certain “public vessels” (as defined in 40 C.F.R.
§ 1043.20), all vessels that operate in the North American ECA are required to be in compliance
with the Annex VI ECA fuel oil sulfur standard. Note, most vessels under 400 gross tonnage are
likely already in compliance with the standard as the majority of these vessels operate using
solely distillate fuel oil that meets the Annex VI ECA fuel oil sulfur limit.

How do I comply with the Annex VI ECA fuel oil sulfur standards while operating in the
North American ECA?

You are required to either use Annex VI ECA compliant fuel oil when operating within the
designated North American ECA, or to install and use an equivalent method as approved and
allowed under MARPOL Annex VI Regulation 4, and 40 C.F.R. § 1043.55 (e.g., exhaust gas
cleaning device).
How do I demonstrate that the fuel oil used on my ship complies with the Annex VI ECA
fuel oil sulfur standard while operating in the North American ECA?

You are required to maintain and, if requested, make available to the United States government, the
following:
Bunker delivery notes, for vessels 400 gross tonnage and above. See Annex VI
Regulation 18.5 and 40 C.F.R. §§ 1043.70, 1043.100. While bunker delivery notes
are not required for ships less than 400 gross tonnage, owners and operators of such
ships may maintain appropriate fuel oil records that document the sulfur content of
fuel oil used onboard to demonstrate compliance with the requirements;
Representative fuel oil samples, taken at the time of fuel oil delivery. See
Annex VI Regulation 18.8.1 and 40 C.F.R. §§ 1043.70, 1043.100;
Written fuel oil changeover procedures, which show how and when the fuel oil
changeover is to be done to ensure that only compliant fuel oil is burned within a
designated ECA. See Annex VI Regulation 14.6 and 40 C.F.R.
§§ 1043.70, 1043.100); and
The fuel oil changeover logbook that contains the volume of compliant fuel oil in each
tank as well as the date, time, and position of the ship when any fuel oil changeover
operation is completed prior to entry into or commenced after exit of a designated ECA.
See Annex VI Regulation 14.6 and 40 C.F.R.
§§ 1043.70, 1043.100.
These records may be inspected to determine if the fuel oil used onboard the ship while operating
in the North American ECA meets the MARPOL Annex VI sulfur standard. In addition, the
United States government may also verify compliance by any methods available to it including,
but not limited to, sampling and analyzing fuel oil from a ship’s fuel oil tanks and lines, and
sampling and analyzing air emissions from a ship’s plume.

The United States government may also require additional information on a case by case basis. The
United States government may also use any credible evidence to determine compliance.
If compliant fuel oil meeting the 1.00% m/m (10,000 ppm) sulfur standard is not available
when I purchase fuel oil, what should I do?
First, and most importantly, fuel oil that complies with the 1.00% m/m (10,000 ppm) sulfur
standard is expected to be available for ships that plan to operate in the North American ECA just
as it has been available for ships operating in the North Sea and Baltic Sulfur Emission Control
Areas since July 2010. The law requires that you use compliant fuel oil or equivalent methods
when operating within the North American ECA. MARPOL Annex VI Regulation 18,
as incorporated by reference in 40 C.F.R. § 1043.100, anticipates the possibility that despite your
best efforts to obtain compliant fuel oil, you may be unable to do so, and the United States has
the authority to take into account all relevant circumstances to determine the appropriate action to
take, including not taking control measures. Id.

Best efforts to procure compliant fuel oil include, but are not limited to, investigating alternate
sources of fuel oil prior to commencing your voyage or in route prior to entering the North
American ECA. If, despite your best efforts, you are unable to procure compliant fuel oil prior to
entering the North American ECA, you must notify the United States and your flag
Administration. See Annex VI Regulation 18.2.4, as incorporated by reference in 40 C.F.R.
1043.100(a)(1).

In addition, if you want the United States government to consider your efforts in determining
what action the government may take, you should provide the following information in the form
of a Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report, as described below, that details your efforts to obtain
compliant fuel oil. In order to minimize disruptions to commerce and avoid delays, you should
submit this Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report as soon as you determine, or become aware, that
you will be unable to procure and use compliant fuel oil in the North American ECA, but no later
than 96 hours prior to entering the North American ECA.

The United States government will consider this information when it determines what action, if
any, it will take when the ship enters the North American ECA using noncompliant fuel oil.

Does making a best effort mean that I am required to deviate from my intended voyage to
purchase compliant fuel oil for use in the North American ECA?

You must consider the availability of compliant fuel oil when planning your voyage and, if compliant
fuel oil is not available where planned, you must attempt to locate alternative sources for such fuel oil. See
Regulation 18.2.1.2 as incorporated by reference in 40 C.F.R. § 1043.100. Furthermore, you must attempt
to obtain ECA-compliant fuel oil at each port on your intended voyage. The United States government
expects a vessel operator to make any adjustments that can be made to fuel oil purchase protocols that
would allow the purchase of complaint fuel oil prior to entering the North American ECA. However, you are
not required to deviate from your intended voyage in order to purchase compliant fuel oil. See Regulation
18.2.2 as incorporated by reference in 40 C.F.R. § 1043.100.
Furthermore, the United States government does not consider having to change berth or anchor
within a port in order to receive compliant fuel oil to be a deviation. The United States
government expects a vessel operator to account for these logistical conditions and/or
terminal/port policies when planning bunker delivery during a port call.

TO LOW SULPHUR FUEL OIL

Additionally, once you have entered the North American ECA, the United States government
expects that you will take on compliant fuel oil, if available, from a U.S. port-of-call prior to
further transit in the North American ECA.

If marine distillate fuel is available where I bunker, does making a best effort mean I am
required to use this fuel?

The EPA has clarified that while we expect distillate fuels of various grades to be used as
blending agents to produce 1.00% m/m (10,000 ppm) sulfur fuel oil, we do not expect vessels to
use a fuel oil with viscosity less than 11 centistokes in order to meet the 1.00% m/m (10,000
ppm) fuel sulfur standard. See http://www.epa.gov/otaq/oceanvessels.htm then select Guidance
and Publications. Therefore, consistent with this clarification, prior to January 1, 2015, when the
0.10% m/m (1,000 ppm) sulfur standard begins, we will not give consideration to the availability
of distillate fuel oil, other than as a blending agent, when we evaluate the circumstances
described in a submitted Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report. Rather, we will only consider the
availability of residual and residual fuel oil blends in determining what action, if any, to take.

If I am unable to purchase 1.00% m/m (10,000 ppm) compliant fuel oil, but through my
best efforts I purchase the cleanest fuel oil possible, will any consideration be given to my
efforts?

If I am unable to purchase 1.00% m/m (10,000 ppm) compliant fuel oil, but through my
best efforts I purchase the cleanest fuel oil possible, will any consideration be given to my
efforts?
In evaluating the circumstances described in a submitted Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report, the
United States government will give consideration to actions taken to minimize the amount of
excess emissions such as purchase of the next cleanest fuel oil possible.
The United States government does not consider the cost of compliant fuel oil to be a valid
basis for claiming you were unable to purchase 1.00% m/m (10,000 ppm) fuel oil. Nor is the
cost of compliant fuel oil a valid basis for claiming that such fuel oil was not available.

In evaluating my efforts to purchase residual fuel oil blends meeting the 1.00% m/m
(10,000 ppm) fuel oil sulfur standard, will consideration be given to the unique operating
requirements of my vessel?

Yes. However, the United States government expects that you have taken, and will continue to
take, actions necessary to enable your ship to burn most commercially available residual fuel oil
blends. If you have taken such actions, then, if you limit your search for the lowest sulfur marine
34
PROCEDURES
FOR CHANGING OVER FROM HIGH SULPHUR FUEL OIL
TO LOW SULPHUR FUEL OIL
residual fuel oil (HFO or IFO) to those fuel oils that meet the operating requirements of your
engines, for example with respect to viscosity or other fuel oil parameters, we will consider an
explanation of these operating requirements as detailed in the Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report
described below. If you have submitted a Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report for a ship that
identifies such operational constraints, you must also specify steps you have taken, or are taking, to
resolve these operational constraints that will allow you to use all commercially available
residual fuel oil blends. The United States government will take into account progress made
toward resolving these technical difficulties when determining the action it will take.

The United States government also expects that vessel operators are vigorously preparing for the
0.10% m/m (1,000 ppm) MARPOL Annex VI ECA fuel oil sulfur standard that will become
effective January 1, 2015, and that will likely necessitate the use of distillate fuel oil. We expect
that vessel operators will be prepared to operate their vessels using fuel oil that meets the 0.10%
m/m (1,000 ppm) sulfur standard as soon as that standard takes effect.

What should my Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report contain?


MARPOL Annex VI Regulation 18.2, as incorporated by reference in 40 C.F.R. § 1043.100,
provides that a vessel not in compliance with the fuel oil sulfur standards will “(1) present a
record of the actions taken to attempt to achieve compliance; and (2) provide evidence that it
attempted to purchase compliant fuel oil in accordance with its voyage plan and, if it was not made
available where planned, that attempts were made to locate alternative sources for such fuel oil and
that despite best efforts to obtain compliant fuel oil, no such fuel oil was made available for
purchase.”

Consistent with these requirements, the following information should be included in the Fuel Oil
Non-Availability Report:

The vessel’s name, flag, and IMO identification number or other relevant registration number;
A copy (or description) of the ship’s voyage plan in place at the time of entry into the North
American ECA, including the vessel’s port of origin and port of destination, and the name of
the first U.S. port of arrival;
When the vessel first received notice it would be conducting a voyage involving transit in the
North American ECA, and the vessel’s location when it first received such notice;
The date and time the ship operator expects to enter and exit the North American ECA, as
well as the projected days on which the ship’s main propulsion engines will be in operation;
The sulfur content of the fuel oil that will be used when entering and operating in the North
American ECA;
A description of the actions taken to attempt to achieve compliance prior to entering the North
American ECA, including a description of all attempts that were made to locate alternative
sources of compliant fuel oil, and a description of the reason why compliant fuel oil was not
available (e.g., compliant fuel oil was not available at ports on “intended voyage;” fuel oil supply
disruptions at port; etc. As mentioned above, the United States government does not consider the
cost of compliant fuel oil to be a valid basis for claiming the non-availability of compliant fuel
oil). Include names and addresses of the fuel oil suppliers contacted and the dates on which the
contact was made;
In cases of fuel oil supply disruption, the name of the port at which the vessel was scheduled to

35
PROCEDURES
FOR CHANGING OVER FROM HIGH SULPHUR FUEL OIL
TO LOW SULPHUR FUEL OIL
receive compliant fuel oil and the name of the fuel oil supplier that is now reporting the non-
availability of compliant fuel oil;
If applicable, identify and describe any operational constraints that prevented you from using
available compliant fuel oil, for example with respect to viscosity or other fuel oil parameters.
Specify steps you have taken, or are taking, to resolve these operational constraints that will
allow you to use all commercially available residual fuel oil blends;
The availability of compliant fuel oil at the first port-of-call in the United States, and your
plans to obtain that fuel oil;
If compliant fuel oil is not available at the first port-of-call in the United States, the lowest sulfur
content of available fuel oil, or the lowest sulfur content of available fuel oil at the next port-of-
call in the United States;
If the vessel has operated in the North American ECA in the prior 12 months, provide the names
of all U.S. ports visited, the dates of the port calls, and whether the vessel used compliant fuel
oil;
If the vessel or owner/operator has submitted a Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report to the United
States government in the previous 12 months, identify the number of Fuel- Oil Non-Availability
Reports previously submitted, and provide details on the dates and ports previously visited while
using non-compliant fuel oil; and
All relevant contact information, including the ship master, ship operator, legal agent in the
United States, ship owner, and any related parent companies. Also include a designated
corporate official who is authorized to answer additional questions relating to claims of fuel oil
unavailability and his or her full contact information.

The United States government will consider the information submitted in a Fuel Oil Non-
Availability Report to be reliable only if the report is signed by an authorized representative of
your company and contains the following affirmation:
I certify under penalty of law that the statements and information made herein are, to the best
of my knowledge and belief, true and complete. I am aware that there are significant penalties for
knowingly submitting false statements and information, including the possibility of fines and
imprisonment pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 1001.

When should I file my Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report?

If you are making a claim regarding the non-availability of compliant fuel oil, you should submit
your Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report to the United States government prior to entering the
North American ECA. The report should be submitted as soon as you determine that you will be
unable to procure and use compliant fuel oil upon entry into the North American ECA, but no
later than 96 hours prior to entering the North American ECA.

Where do I send my Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report?

The United States government is currently in the process of implementing an electronic system
to receive Fuel Oil Non-Availability Reports. Information on the electronic system, including the
launch date of the system, will be announced on U.S. EPA’s website at
http://www.epa.gov/otaq/oceanvessels.htm, and on the United States Coast Guard’s website at
http://homeport.uscg.mil, then select Domestic Vessels then Domestic Vessel General, then select
MARPOL Annex VI. You may also sign up for an e-mail notification of the launch of the
36
PROCEDURES
FOR CHANGING OVER FROM HIGH SULPHUR FUEL OIL
TO LOW SULPHUR FUEL OIL
electronic system, as well as future marine alerts, using U.S. EPA’s EnviroFlash application at:
https://enviroflash.epa.gov/enviroflashOTAQPublic/Subscriber.do?method=start.

Prior to the implementation of the electronic system, you may send your Fuel Oil Non- Availability
Report to the following e-mail address: marine-eca@epa.gov.
You must also notify your flag administration if you cannot purchase compliant fuel oil. See
Annex VI Regulation 18.2.4, as incorporated by reference in 40 C.F.R. § 1043.100. Additionally,
the United States government is obligated to notify the IMO when a ship presents evidence of the
non-availability of compliant fuel oil. See Annex VI Regulation 18.2.5, as incorporated by
reference in 40 C.F.R. § 1043.100.

By filing a Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report, will my ship be deemed to be in compliance


with the MARPOL Annex VI fuel oil sulfur standard that applies in the North American
ECA?

No. The filing of a Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report does not mean your ship is deemed to be in
compliance with MARPOL Annex VI. However, the United States government will take into
account the information provided in your Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report, as well as all relevant
circumstances, to determine the appropriate action to take, if any, in response to the MARPOL
Annex VI fuel oil sulfur standard violation.

In considering what action to take, the United States government will also consider the following:
The sulfur content of the fuel oil that was used onboard the ship, and whether it was the
lowest sulfur fuel oil available at the time of fuel oil purchase and/or available along the ship’s
intended voyage;
Whether the ship obtained compliant fuel oil at its first port-of-call in the United States and used
that fuel oil for the remainder of the voyage in the North American ECA;
How many Fuel Oil Non-Availability Reports have been previously filed by the ship, the
operating company, and the vessel owner;
What actions have been taken to address any engine-related constraints with respect to
using compliant fuel oil that is available on the specified route;
Whether other vessels on similar voyages submitted Fuel Oil Non-Availability Reports; and any
other relevant factors.

What other actions may be required?


Once you have entered the North American ECA, in order to avoid further violations of
Annex VI fuel oil requirements, you must purchase compliant fuel oil, if available, from a
U.S. port-of- call prior to further transit in the North American ECA. You must purchase a
sufficient quantity of such compliant fuel oil that will allow the ship to complete its voyage in the
North American ECA.

Furthermore, if the vessel master or owner/operator is on notice that the vessel will be returning to
the North American ECA on a future voyage and does not expect to be able to obtain compliant
fuel oil outside of the North American ECA prior to the ship’s return to the North American
ECA, we expect that the vessel will obtain a sufficient quantity of compliant fuel oil from the
U.S. port-of-call that will allow the vessel to re-enter the North American ECA on the future
voyage in compliance with the Annex VI fuel oil sulfur standards. Failure to do so will be a factor

37
PROCEDURES
FOR CHANGING OVER FROM HIGH SULPHUR FUEL OIL
TO LOW SULPHUR FUEL OIL
in any enforcement response decision regarding that future entry.

Furthermore, the United States government may require additional documentation and
substantiation of fuel oil non-availability claims from owners or operators of ships that have
submitted repeated or multiple Fuel Oil Non-Availability Reports. The United States
government may also consider conducting more extensive inspections or exams of such ships
while in port.

Where can I get additional information on the North American ECA and the fuel oil
sulfur requirements?

More detailed information on the MARPOL Annex VI requirements, including the North
American ECA and fuel oil sulfur requirements, is available on the U.S. EPA’s website at
http://www.epa.gov/otaq/oceanvessels.htm, or on the United States Coast Guard’s website at

Vessels Visiting California Ports

Upcoming January 1, 2014 Requirements in the Regulation for Fuel Sulfur and
Other Operational Requirements for Ocean-Going Vessels within California
Waters and 24 Nautical Miles of the California Baseline (California OGV Fuel
Regulation)

The California OGV Fuel Regulation, which has been enforced since July 2009,
provides significant air quality benefits by requiring ships to use cleaner, low sulfur marine
distillate fuel. The purpose of this advisory is to notify owners and operators of upcoming
changes in the fuel sulfur requirements beginning January 1, 2014, and to remind
operators that they must comply with both the California OGV Fuel Regulation and the
North American Emission Control Area (ECA) requirements. There are also 2014
requirements for some vessels under California’s At-Berth Regulation. More information
on this regulation can be found here:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/shorepower/shorepower.htm
What are the upcoming changes in the maximum allowable fuel sulfur
content requirements under the California OGV Fuel Regulation?
Beginning January 1, 2014 the maximum fuel sulfur (S) limit for both marine gas oil (DMA)
and marine diesel oil (DMB) will be 0.1% S. These Phase II requirements (shown in Table
1) will be enforced within the California OGV regulatory zone, which is 24 nm off the
coast of California, including islands, as shown in Figure 1.

Do ships visiting California ports have to comply with both the California OGV
Fuel Regulation and the ECA?

Yes. Vessels must meet both the requirements of the California OGV Fuel Regulation
and the ECA. Information on the ECA can be found at:
http://www.epa.gov/otaq/oceanvessels.htm#north-american

What if I cannot find fuel that meets the 0.1% Sulfur Limit?

The California OGV Fuel Regulation contains a Noncompliance Fee Provision designed to
accommodate vessel operators unable to find compliant fuel. Using this provision, vessel
operators can pay a fee in lieu of direct compliance with the fuel standards. In addition, a
vessel operator can use this provision without paying a fee once per vessel in 2014 if they
are unable to source 0.1% sulfur fuel. To avoid paying the fee, a vessel operator must
make a good faith effort to acquire compliant fuel, use marine distillate fuel that meets the
Phase I requirements that began on August 1, 2012 (shown above) on the inbound
voyage, and purchase and use compliant Phase II fuel for the remainder of the voyage in
the California OGV regulatory zone. Vessel operators must also comply with the other
provisions of the Noncompliance Fee Provision. For more information on this provision,
please see Advisory 2011-3 here:

Marine Notice 2017-1


August 2017
Advisory to Owners or Operators of Ocean-Going Vessels Visiting
California Ports
Guidance for the Use of the
Temporary Experimental or Research Exemption in the
California Ocean-Going Vessel Fuel Regulation1
The California Ocean-Going Vessel (OGV) Fuel Regulation includes a provision entitled the
“Temporary Experimental or Research Exemption” (or “research exemption”)2. The purpose of
the research exemption is to allow for the testing of technologies being used as alternatives to the
low sulfur distillate grades of fuel specified in the California OGV Fuel Regulation. This
provision allows vessel operators to apply for an exemption from the fuel standards and other
requirements specified in the regulation for up to three years, with the possibility for an additional
extension of up to three years. To use this exemption, vessel operators must participate in a
research project that will advance the state of knowledge of exhaust control technologies or
characterization of emissions.

For vessel visits on or after October 1, 2017, the following procedures will apply for all new
applications for the research exemption (and extensions of existing exemptions):

 Applicants (including those using exhaust gas scrubbers or low sulfur heavy fuels) will
need to follow the requirements specified in subsection c(6) in the California OGV Fuel
Regulation2.
 Applications must be submitted at least thirty days prior to entering Regulated California
Waters, as defined in the Regulation (e.g., September 1, 2017 for research projects
beginning on October 1, 2017).
 California Air Resources Board staff will evaluate applications submitted by vessel
operators and recommend approval if staff determines that the application meets all of the

What are the Requirements under subsection c(6) to Use the Research Exemption?
Vessel operators may apply for the research exemption if they want to test the use of an exhaust
treatment device or other control technology along with a high sulfur (non-complying) fuel to see if
equivalent emission reductions can be achieved compared to the low sulfur distillate fuels required by
the California OGV Fuel Regulation. Vessel operators must apply in advance (at least 30 days before
the vessel enters Regulated California Waters) and receive approval in advance for the project in the
form of an Executive Order from the Executive Officer of the California Air Resources Board, or his
designee. The vessel operator must also take all feasible measures during the exemption period to
limit emissions of diesel particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur oxides. During the project, the
vessel operator must submit annual progress reports detailing any vessel modifications and interim test
data or results to the Executive Officer. At the conclusion of the project, all official test data and
other results must be provided in final form to the Executive Officer within 90 days of the expiration
of the exemption period.
Vessel operators seeking approval for the research exemption must submit research project plans
meeting all the criteria identified in the Regulation for the research exemption, as determined by the
California Air Resources Board staff. Listed below is a summary of these criteria for each plan
(applicants should review the full regulatory text prior to submitting an application):
 Identifies the purpose, goals and objectives of the project
 Identifies measures that will be taken to minimize emissions of air contaminants
 Identifies testing procedures to be used and the testing schedule
 Provides a clear and convincing demonstration that the proposed use of non- compliant fuel will
generate data as part of a research project that will advance the state of knowledge of exhaust
control technology or characterization of emissions
 Provides the specifications of the non-compliant fuel to be used, including the sulfur content and
ASTM specifications if applicable

It is stated that it is requested to continue using the normal marine fuels in the
reference (b) letter by IMEAK (Istanbul & Marmara, Aegean, Mediterranean, Black sea
Regions) Chamber of Shipping on account of the fact that any emission detection field has
not been declared in our country yet by stating with your reference (a) letter that vessels
coming to ports of our country as of 2012 can not use marine diesel whose sulphur content
exceeds 0,1 % under the scope of “Regulation on Reduction of Sulphur Rate in Some Types
of Fuel Oils”, which has entered into force with 29.09.2009 dated and 2009/15478
numbered Council of Ministers’ Decision; it can not be understood how to make the
application for the fossil fuels. In the continuation of letter, it is requested to assess the
reference (b) letter sent in the attachment of letter with reference to the works conducted
by our Undersecretariat in connection with marine fuels and to inform its result to your
Ministry.

As it is known, reference (c) regulation, enacted in coordination with your Ministry


for harmonization with European Union Directives before “Environment Section” negotiated
within the scope of harmonization works conducted in European Union membership process,
has replaced with reference (d) regulation.
When reference (b) letter is inspected, it is understood that reference (c) and (d)
regulations are interpreted as “vessels coming to ports of our country can not use marine
diesel whose sulphur content exceeds 0.1% by mass as of 01.01.2012”. Before
aforementioned regulation is enacted and subsequently, meetings have been organized by
the sector representatives regarding the subject with the participation of Energy Market
Regulatory Board (EPDK), Association of Ship Fuel Suppliers and Chamber of Shipping and
such developments have been mentioned in the aforementioned meetings.

In this respect, marine fuels have been determined by the regulations enacted by
EPDK and while fuels which are commonly defined as gas oil or diesel in the marine
language, are called as Group I marine diesel and Group II marine diesel in the relevant
regulations, fuels which are commonly defined as fuel oil in the marine language, are called
as marine fuel in the relevant regulations. These fuels are produced and supplied to the market
according to TR ISO 8217 standard in our country.

It is resolved in 7th article of reference (c) regulation amended with reference (d) that
marine fuels whose sulphur content exceeds 0,1 % by mass can not be used as of 01.01.2012
in the inland vessels and in the vessels on the quay. It has been resolved according to the
communiqué enacted by EPDK and published in 11 October 2009 dated and 27373
numbered Official Gazette (Bunker Fuel Serial No: 3) that from among marine fuels
supplied to the market or circulating as of 31.12.2011, Group I marine diesel can contain
maximum 0,1 % sulphur and Group II marine diesel can contain maximum 1,5 %
sulphur and this situation is supportive to the provision of aforementioned regulation.
Although it is also stated according to 5th article of reference (c) regulation amended
with reference (d) that marine fuels, whose sulphur content exceeds 1,5 %, is not used in
SOx Emission Detection Fields in our country’s marine jurisdictions, there is not any SOx
Emission Detection Field determined in our country yet. However, it has been also resolved
in this article that vessels with Turkish flag can not use marine fuels whose sulphur
content exceeds 1,5% in accordance with MARPOL Annex 6 in SOx Emission
Detection Fields defined by International Maritime Organization. Additionally, it has
been also resolved in this article that all passenger vessels providing regular service
should use marine fuels whose sulphur content does not exceed 1,5 % while they are
sailing in our country’s marine jurisdiction.
Consequently, marine fuels have been regulated with the aforementioned
regulations and there is not any additional regulation made by our Undersecretariat.
I kindly request you to be informed and to take necessary actions.
