Comments on the IMO consultation on cutting unnecessary paperwork

The Clean Shipping Coalition supports in principle the efforts from the International Maritime Organisation to assess opportunities of reducing the administrative burden that could arise from the application of the relevant international conventions. However, we believe that this effort should not be used as a way to undermine the current regulatory framework nor to relax the necessary enforcement procedures.
 

The Clean Shipping Coalition (CSC) is a non-profit making non-governmental organisation that works to improve the environmental performance of international shipping  by  bringing  extensive experience and expertise to bear on relevant international regulatory processes, and in particular the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). Since June 2010, the CSC has been granted observer status at IMO.
