Sažetak
As environmental protection has always been of major concern for the maritime community, the paper is focused on air pollution caused by ships, i.e. the pollutant emissions from ships due to combustion of marine fuels with high sulphur content harming human health, damaging the environment and contributing to acidification. It elaborates both international and national regulations on air pollution from ships, above all Marine Environment Protection Committee MEPC.176 Amendments to the Annex of the Protocol of 1997 to amend the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, as modified by the Protocol of 1978 relating thereto (Revised MARPOL Annex VI). Moreover, the paper analyses regulatory activities of the European Commission, United States Environmental Protecting Agency and International Maritime Organization in an ongoing endeavour to reduce marine emissions. The authors are urging for emission abatement code of behaviour in an effort to find effective worldwide solution in order to develop shipping as a sustainable transport mode that protects health and environment.
