Simple IMO MARPOL 73/78 Annex VI Compliance
The CMT MARPOL Bunker Cabinet is a complete unit providing everything needed to comply with the IMO MARPOL regulations. It is a “non-brainer” unit containing everything for collection, retention and storage of bunker fuel oil samples according the IMO MARPOL regulations.
MEPC.96(47) defines the bunker sample collection and storage. Guidelines have been defined which state that "a retained sample of all fuel oil as supplied, is drawn at the ships receiving manifold, sealed, signed and then retained under the ship's control until the subject fuel has been substantially consumed, and for at least 12 months from the date of delivery".
All fuel samples can be collected, sealed and stored in a safe, secure location and are ready for immediate inspection by Port State Control if required. The Bunker Fuel Sample Log Book enables the Master to maintain a simple and effective tracking system for fuel samples held onboard.
