Ahead of the implementation of the IMO Global Sulphur Cap on 01 January 2020, RightShip is asking the operators of vessels over 8,000 DWT to confirm their compliant fuel choices and ship implementation plans in a new compliance assessment.

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.    

How to provide IMO 2020 compliance data: 

  1. Sign up to receive RightShip's IMO 2020 Global Sulphur Cap Questionnaire by completing the request form. 
  2. Once the request form has been received and the information verified by the RightShip team, you will be sent a questionnaire to fill out with the IMO 2020 compliance data for the vessels that you manage. 

Please note that the IMO 2020 compliance information collected will not impact a vessel's Risk (Star) Rating or GHG Rating. 

Vetting customers will be able to use the compliance option as a vetting criteria from 01 December 2019. 

During the vetting process, if the manager has indicated that a vessel does not have a valid method of compliance, the vet requestor is informed accordingly of the risk of non-compliance or incidents. 

Regardless of the compliance option chosen by the vessel owner, the decision to accept the ship or not remains with the vetting customer. 

After the January 1st 2020, any serious incidents, detentions or non-compliance related to the regulation will be flagged in Qi. This follows the current RightShip practice whereby the vessel’s Risk Rating will be downgraded until the root cause analysis is completed or the manager can prove compliance. Repeat incidents or non-compliance will be flagged during the vetting process.
