Global compliance with IMO’s decision on the implementation of a global sulphur limit in marine fuels is needed to avoid competitive distortions that may result from uneven implementation of the global sulphur cap.

A platform amongst associations supplying marine fuel to the market is an adequate way to create awareness and provide relevant information from the refining industry on the issue in the different parts of the world.

The main scope of the platform would be to underline the importance of a consistent and effective implementation of IMO’s decision in all regions of the world.
