The International Maritime Organization (IMO), through its marine pollution protocol (MARPOL), is seeking convergence to zero emissions. This has been adopted by member states to address pollution in the oceans but is increasingly being used as an expanding regulation to encompass emissions reduction measures to the atmosphere. MARPOL Annex VI also requires reductions in NOx (nitrogen oxide) emissions worldwide.
Limits vary according to engine size, type and power. Current limits worldwide are based on a tiered system which has been tightening limits since 2011 and follows closely the direction taken by the land transport industry.
