Working to improve quality of marine fuels
New editions of two ISO Standards on marine fuels have been developed to meet higher international requirements for air quality, ship safety, engine performance, and crew health.
The development of ISO 8217:2010 Petroleum products – Fuels (class F) – Specifications of marine fuels was driven by a request by ISO's partner, the International Maritime Organization, to have it ready by the 1 July 2010 implementation date of the revised Annex VI of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL).
