The latest regulations Ref: MARPOL MEPC 63 are for the control of cleaning agents used for cleaning of cargo hold/decks and external surfaces.
Particularly in the process of cargo hold cleaning such as typically, petcoke, cement, coal and iron, as well as other bulk cargo.
IMO has previously approved chemicals/cleaners for tank cleaning and most of them can be used for cargo hold / deck cleaning.
Many Aquamarine products are IMO approved. In the Aquamarine Declaration you will find an indicative list of these products as well as the guidelines of the rules involved. MARPOL 63/23/Add.1 Annex. 24 / MEPC 219 (63) March 1, 2012.
Shipping companies today are requesting a declaration from their suppliers, regarding the conformance of their products within above rules. Please request your IMO Declaration from Aquamarine.
As long as you have the Aquamarine MSDS and literature & declaration you are then compliant.
