The Clean Air Act is the law that defines EPA's responsibilities for protecting and improving the nation's air quality and the stratospheric ozone layer. The last major change in the law, the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, was enacted by Congress in 1990. Legislation passed since then has made several minor changes. The Clean Air Act, like other laws enacted by Congress, was incorporated into the United States Code as Title 42, Chapter 85. Congress designed the Clean Air Act to protect public health and welfare from different types of air pollution caused by a diverse array of pollution sources. It is regulated under US law under the CFR Title 40 - Protection of Environment, Chapter I - ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY with Subchapter U, for AIR POLLUTION CONTROLS and Part 1043 for CONTROL OF NOX, SOX, AND PM EMISSIONS FROM MARINE ENGINES AND VESSELS SUBJECT TO THE MARPOL PROTOCOL. On October 8, 2008, the United States became a Party to MARPOL 73/78, Annex VI – Regulations for the Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships (hereon referred to as Annex VI). Starting on January 8, 2009, all U.S. ships must comply with the applicable portions of Annex VI. For the U.S. inspected vessels, the Coast Guard will verify shipboard compliance with the applicable provisions of Annex VI and issue IAPP Certificates or Annex VI COI endorsements as appropriate during routine scheduled inspections, such as during the inspection for certification or an annual re-inspection for endorsement on a COI. For uninspected vessels, the Coast Guard will conduct Annex VI compliance exams in conjunction with other Coast Guard examinations or boardings and may issue IAPP Certificates upon request.
This course, Marine Clean Air Act and Inspections, starts by explaining the history and the amendment of the Clean Air Act. You will learn about the control of common pollutants and other air pollution problems of the congress. Moreover, you will learn about EPA and MARPOL compliance for engines in addition to the emission control areas. You will be taken through the EPA regulations for emissions from vehicles and engines besides the compliance requirements for US EPA. Furthermore, the course outlines the major diesel engine emissions as well as the comparison between MARPOL and EPA applicability status. You will learn about the regulations for emissions from marine spark-ignition engines. In this course, great detail is put into the domestic regulations for emissions from marine compression-ignition engines, including the international standards to reduce emissions from marine diesel engines and marine diesel engine fuels. This course discusses the background and the tiers of the EPA evolution of nonroad diesel engine regulations. The course takes a look at the MARPOL Annex VI on NOx and SOx emissions from ship exhaust as well as emissions of ozone-depleting substances. You will also learn about the emission control areas along with the United State's regulators and enforcement.
This free online course on Marine Clean Air Act and Inspections aims at discussing the MARPOL Annex VI verification for US flag vessels in addition to the IAPP certificate compliance dates and documents by vessel types. By taking this course, you will analyze the details of inspections of the EPA engine emission regulations besides technical files and engine documentation certifications. You will also examine the international safety management code and the foreign flagship examination. You will learn about the inspections for hazardous and air pollutants from ships. You will also study the MARPOL Annex VI fuel oil sulfur standards and the fuel oil non-availability report. You will then learn about the engines that can be certified by US EFA as meeting Clean Air Act Tier 3 concerning the issues incurred with low sulfur fuel. Lastly, you will learn about the precautions in handling low sulfur fuel oil and the procedures for fuel change-over. This course will be of significant interest to students, researchers, marine engineers, environmentalists, and anyone with an interest in the protection of the marine environment by limiting air pollution by ship.
