Transport Canada issues a Ship Safety Bulletin regarding Canada's deferred enforcement of NA ECA
This provides guidance as to what will happen in Canada for the interim period that will run from August 1 until the publication of the regulations allowing for enforcement of the ECA, which is tentatively scheduled for November.
Of significant commercial importance is the first full paragraph on page 3 which states: "In the event a vessel is found in the NA-ECA to have fuel onboard with sulphur content greater than 1%, Marine Safety Inspectors may verbally advise the Master of the pending air emissions standards and the fact that they will soon be enforceable."
