Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems - Approval Process and Guidance in Case of Failure

The Isle of Man is able to accept Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS) as an equivalence under MARPOL Annex VI Regulation 4.1 provided that they are approved by a Recognised Organisation in accordance with the IMO guidelines within MEPC.259(68).

We have published TAN 010-19 to provide updated guidance concerning the process to have these approved as an equivalence. Section 2 also contains guidance for operators in case of EGCS malfunction.
