Quadrant Spring Shipping Seminar: Taking Sulphur out of the System: Regulatory, Technical and Legal Issues


View the Recording here:

At the 2019 Quadrant Chambers Spring Shipping Seminar, our panel considered the hot topic of regulatory, technical and legal issues precipitated by the IMO Marpol Annex VI regulation on limiting sulphur content of bunker fuel, due to come into force on 1 January 2020.  

The panel looked at the following:

  • Regulatory changes – where are we now, where we are going and what is happening in other jurisdictions?
  • Technical Challenges and Solutions – here we look at scrubbers, space and energy demands, alternative fuels, dual fuel engines and bunker availability
  • Legal issues arising under time charterparties

Nichola Warrender chaired the panel which included LOC’s Nick Chell and Quadrant’s James M Turner QC and Thomas Macey-Dare QC.
