New BIMCO & IBIA Bunkering Guide available

18/10/2018

The Bunkering Guide jointly produced by BIMCO and IBIA has been updated and is now available to our members. The purpose of this pamphlet is to provide a handy and easy guide to help seafarers involved in bunkering operations.

Bunkering is a vital and critical ship operation and requires due care to ensure safety and to mitigate the risk of pollution. The guide provides general information, advice and guidance to help seafarers involved in bunkering operations act in compliance with the appropriate regulations and industry best practices.

Besides a general update on different fuel types and regulations since the last BIMCO & IBIA Bunkering Guide, the latest version of the pamphlet also expands on fuel oil sampling and Bunker Delivery Notes.
