Webinar question: meaning of “Constructed at”

Have you seen the replay yet of our webinar discussing the latest adaptions to the IMO Tier III regulations? Held in partnership with Cayman Registry, Fraser Yachts, DIANA Yacht Design and Hug Engineering we covered a broad range of topics. Some of the questions raised will also be looked at on our website.

Question: “Regarding the Tier III regulations could you explain the meaning of “Constructed at” as mentioned in Marpol annex VI? Does this refer to the date of the keel-laying or a signed agreement?”

Answer: “Ships constructed” refers to the official keel-laying date or an equivalent stage of construction.”
