The UAE Federal Transport Authority (FTA) circular No 11 2019 provides that from 1 January 2020 all UAE flagged and foreign flagged vessels entering UAE waters are to use fuel oil with a sulphur content not exceeding 0.50% m/m. Exemptions apply to vessels using alternative measures such as the exhaust gas cleaning system or other fuels that comply with the required emission levels. Vessels using non-compliant fuel oil must submit a Fuel Oil Non-Availability Report (FONAR) before departing the last port and at least 48 hours before entering UAE waters. From 1 March 2020 non-compliant vessels will be prohibited from entering UAE waters.
