    Phase 1 Effective from 1 Jan 2016, all ports who find themselves already following suit to MARPOL to limit sulphur emission to less than 0.5% are entitled to decide to enforce the regulation on their own discretion

    Phase 2

    Phase 4 Effective from 1 Jan 2019, all vessels in the emission control area are mandated to use compliant fuel (sulfur max 0.5%)

    Phase 5 by 31 Dec 2019, the government will evaluated the results and consider if further steps will be carried out or not, such as leveling up the regulation into sulfur 0.1% max, or enlarge the SECA to other ranges
