INTERTANKO supports Paris inspection regime.

Paris MoU's New Inspection Regime for European port state control has been presented to INTERTANKO's Hellenic Mediterranean Panel which met last week in Athens.

Paris MoU General Secretary Richard Schiferli presented the new regime, which comes into force January 1, 2011.

It is designed as risk based targeting mechanism that rewards quality shipping with a smaller inspection burden and concentrates on high-risk ships for inspection instead.

Representatives from INTERTANKO's local members also gathered to discuss the Association's draft policy paper on greenhouse gas emission as well as the operational implications of international and regional air emissions regulation.

INTERTANKO environment manager, Tim Wilkins, led a discussion on Black Sea ballast water fines and also on the operational implications of environmental legislation.
