In shipping high standards reflect the quality of the owner not the regulatory regime Erik Murdoch Director of Risk Management, The Standard P&I Club
Leading members of our community, politicians, regulators and charterers alike, appear to be digesting the fact that mere legislative or penalising measures are already reaching their limitations as a driver for further improvement. Many have even started to express their concerns that all such externally imposed controlling devises are becoming counterproductive or even harmful. Emmanuel Vordonis, Executive Director Thenamaris Ships Management, Member of INTERTANKO’s Executive Committee Poseidon challenge
Regulating safety Self regulation Compliance culture Bureaucracy Check list mentality stops initiative Confusion Lack of global standards Right balance provide the best safety culture Alienation Lack of motivation and flexibility Procedures purely to meet reg. req.

Criminalisation • Traditionallyaccidents have been regarded as quite distinct from deliberate acts • Attitudeshave changed(scapegoat mentality) ref.

IACS Common Rules for Tankers as from April 2006 • INTERTANKOinitiative started more than five years ago • Objectives were to: • eliminate class competition on scantlings • embrace the intentions of goal-based standards • meet the requirements of industry and the shipyards • will apply for double hull tankers of 150 m and above. • Ships should be designed with a fatigue life of 25 years based on N Atlantic winter conditions, with corrosion additions also based on 25 years, at least equivalent to or even in excess of all current Class regulations.
Ship Recycling Industry Code of Practice (1999) ILO & Basel Guidelines • Shipping Industry Feedback • Workable • Practical • Objectives Met IMO Guidelines (2003) Consideration of Mandatory Elements • Market Forces • Shipping Industry • Green Recycling International Ship Recycling Convention
Ballast Water Management: • Meeting the Treatment Standard – Treatment Technology • Meeting the Treatment Standard • Ballast Water Exchange and/or Treatment Technology Ships Constructed before 2009 with BW capacity 1500-5000, treatment technology in use after 2014 Ships Constructed before 2009 with BW capacity less than 1500 and greater than 5000, treatment technology in use after 2016 Phase in for Treatment System Installation (B-3) Ships Constructed on or after 2009 with BW capacity less than 5000, treatment technology in use from 2009 Ships Constructed after 2009 but before 2012 with BW capacity greater than 5000, treatment technology in use after 2016 Ships Constructed at 2012 or after with BW capacity greater than 5000, treatment technology in use after 2012
Ballast Water Management: • Meeting the Treatment Standard – Treatment Technology • Case Studies • 40,000dwt Product Tanker to be delivered July 2007 • Ballast water capacity greater than 5000m3 so will be able to conduct ballast water exchange until 2016, when it will then have to have been retrofitted with a ballast water treatment system. • B) 8,000dwt Chemical Tanker to be delivered July 2007 • Ballast capacity of less than 5000m3 but greater than 1500m3, will have to be retrofitted with a ballast water treatment system by 2014. • Existing VLCC – delivered 2003 • Ballast water exchange until 2016, retrofitted after 2016. BUT, if prototype system installed and test programme approved by IMO, 5 year exemption given, upgrade system in 2021.
In the aftermath of Exxon Valdez, 0n 18 August 1990, the US President signed into law the US Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90). This was the first regulation which has mandated double hull design for tankers with a building contract after 30 June 1990 and with a delivery after 31 Dec. 1992 First IMO phase out initiated by the US OPA 90 - ratified by IMO March1992 - enforced as from July 1993 Accelerated IMO phase out initiated by Europe as a result of the ERIKA accident outside France - ratified by IMO April 2000 - enforced as from September 2001 Further acceleration of IMO phase out initiated by Europe as a result of the PRESTIGE accident outside Spain - ratified by IMO December 2003, enforced as from April 2005 - enforced by Europe as from October 2003 The European Union’s Regulation (1726/2003) on single hull tankers took effect on 21st October 2003 Both ERIKA and PRESTIGE carried Heavy Fuel Oils that can pollute up to ten times more than crude oil. IMO therefore adopted a new regulation – Regulation 13H of Annex I of MARPOL 73/78 – banning the carriage of heavy grade oil as cargo in single hull oil tankers as from 5 April 2005. • Phase out history
13G Category 1 - non PL/SBT (pre-MARPOL) tankers out by 2005 Category 2/3 out by 2010 or 2015 subject to administrations Double bottom or side tankers until 25 years 13H Heavy grades of oil in double hull tankers Provisions for some heavy crude oils, double bottom/side tankers and domestic trade OPA90 schedule/size limit different Conversion to PL/SBT - DH AnnexII revision not phase out, but will shut SH tankers out of vegoil+ trades as from 2007 • Phase out Regulations
Special provisions 13 G (5) - double bottom/sides - CAS requirement 13 G (7) - SH trading beyond 2010/25 years 13 G (8) (b) – entry into ports or offshore terminals (provisions (5), (7) 13 H (5) - double bottom/sides - trading beyond 2010/25 years 13 H (6) (a) - crude oil having a density at 15ºC higher than 900 kg/m3 but lower than 945 kg/m3 13H (6) (b) - 600 tons dwt and above but less than 5,000 tons dwt - SH until 25 years 13 H (7) - exclusively within an area under its jurisdiction, 13 H (8) (b) – entry into ports or offshore terminals (provisions (5), (6) • Phase out

Conclusion • Strongindustry performance, but no complacency • Zero tolerance to oil pollution • FormalRegulations must provide room for flexibility and new initiatives • Most pending regulations are common industry regulations • Industry challenge to ensure global standards and regulations • Cooperation with all the members in the maritime responsibility chain will provide the best results
Strong responsible, sustainable and respected industry able to influence its own destiny • INTERTANKO’s aim
