Thomas Safety is your partner to comply the IMO regulations for the environment challenge

Increasing global awareness of environmental contamination and air pollution has drawn attention to the shipping industry’s contribution to the problem, prompting governments and environmental organizations to impose stricter standards and regulations on shipping emissions.

To significantly reduce the detrimental phenomenon, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulates pollutant emissions in marine transportation and requires each vessel to comply with strict regulations, periodic inspections and operations approvals.

The legislation set out by the IMO came into force in January 2015 for SOx control and in 2016 for NOx. In order to analyze equipment efficiency, ship yards, ship owners and marine scrubber manufacturers must equip vessels with an SO2/NOx/CO2 continuous exhaust gas monitoring system and a PAH/turbidity/temperature monitoring system in the wash water discharge system.
