Dear APCIS users,

The information campaign regarding the requirements on the sulphur content of marine fuels will be carried out from 1 January to 31 December 2019.
For the purposes of convenience, the letter of warning (LoW) on 2020 Global Sulphur Cap is available in PDF format through the button “LoW MARPOL Annex VI” on Ship data page of each vessel.

Based on the outcome of the TWG12&PSCC29 meetings, trial implementation of 1,000 characters for deficiency description in the text field “Remarks” was realized in the APCIS on 13.02.2019. Increase of deficiency description up to 1,000 characters is introduced on a trial basis and it is valid for description of all deficiencies.

Please, be informed that indication of overriding priority was implemented in the APCIS test site. It is available for testing by the link: Indication of overriding priority is shown on the ship data page of each high-risk vessel having outstanding deficiencies with action taken codes 30, 46, 17, 16, 15. Outstanding deficiencies with action taken codes 99, 49, 48, 18 were excluded from the scope.

According to the APCIS amendments the functions Draft and VNC were modified in the APCIS as appropriate. Please, contact the APCIS support at in case of any issues.
