The survey, which is designed as a short 3-minutes “tick-the-box” questionnaire, gives stakeholders in the shipping industry the possibility to indicate, amongst other things, if they continue to face challenges during vessel clearance and/or Port State Control inspections. At the same time, MACN would also like to receive feedback on any new innovative or best practices which have been observed for e.g. use of remote technologies which may reduce the opportunity for corrupt demands. Please share this questionnaire among your vessels as their input is highly valuable.
Deadline for responding to the survey is 15 June 2020.

Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) publish regular Bunker Alerts based entirely on fuel samples and have kindly permitted BIMCO’s Members to access this information.
The Bunker Alerts are not intended to be an evaluation of overall bunker quality in the port or area concerned, but usually highlight a specific parameter within the fuel which has raised a quality issue.
