II.1.3)Type of contract
A cost-efficient and coherent implementation and enforcement of Council Directive 1999/32/EC as regards the sulphur content of marine fuels is of high priority to achieve its projected health and environmental benefits resulting from reduced sulphur dioxide emissions from shipping, thus promoting fair competition and increased sustainability of maritime transport.
This is addressed by Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2015/253 which focuses on the necessity that Member States ensure sufficiently frequent and accurate inspections and sampling of marine fuels used on board ships. The provisions on enforcement on fuel suppliers are addressed more broadly than those on sampling of marine fuels on board. This contract is aimed at clarifying or screening how Member States' competent authorities act in respect of fuel oil suppliers, also very relevant in view of the requirement on global cap entering into force in 2020.
