In this second LR webinar focusing on EEXI Compliance and Carbon Intensity Reduction.

Matthew Williams, our Principal Specialist in Strategic Regulatory Projects, will take you through the updates from MEPC 76 due to finish on 17 June 2021, when amendments to MARPOL Annex VI are due to be adopted. 

Matthew and Dr Chris Craddock, our Technical Advisory and Ship Performance Manager, will address the following critical questions facing shipowners and operators:

  • What are the material changes to the IMO guidelines for calculating the attained EEXI and use of Overridable Power Limitation -  and what does this mean for shipowners?
  • When is entry into force, and what is the path to compliance between now and then?
  • What has the IMO determined in terms of Operational Carbon Intensity reduction requirements?
  • What are the unresolved issues, when are they likely to be addressed, and what should shipowners be doing in the meantime?  

This webinar was recorded on the 24 June 2021.
