Marine engines regulations

The EPA regulates emissions standards and has a mission to protect human and environmental health. Emission standards have been reducing levels of Particular Matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) since the first standards were issued in 1996.

A full list of EPA regulations and additional information about Environmental Protections Agency is available here.

Another organization that has a control over emission standards for marine power is IMO – the International Maritime Organization. It’s the United Nations agency that is responsible for the safety, security, and environmental performance of international shipping.

IMO III emissions standards are here.

The commercial marine industry has adjusted its operations to meet EPA Tier 4 and IMO III emission standards.
