SEEMP Part III Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan

From 1 January 2023, ships of 5,000 GT (Gross Tonnage) and above must have a verified Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan, or SEEMP Part III, on board to document how their vessel plans to achieve its Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) targets. The CII is a rating system for ships that the International Maritime Organization (IMO) developed. This will be a mandatory measure under MARPOL Annex VI, which comes into force in 2023.

The plan must include a description of how the vessel will operate and maintain its fuel efficiency throughout the year in line with its overall objective of reducing CO2 emissions and meeting its CO2 reduction commitments. SEEMP Part III documentation is in addition to SEEMP Part I and SEEMP Part II.

SEEMP Part III shall include:

  • methodology for calculating the ship's attained annual operational CII and the processes that will be used to report this value to flag;

  • the required annual operational CII, for the next three years;

  • an implementation plan on how the required annual operational CII will be achieved during the next three years; and

  • a procedure for self-evaluation and improvement.
