BIMCO continues to seek feedback on new CII clause and explain regulatory complexities


The BIMCO CII clause has been developed to help address the commercial complexities of the CII (Carbon Intensity Indicator) regulation entering into force on 1 January 2023. The regulation was adopted at the IMO despite attempts by the industry to point out the potential pitfalls of the CII formula.

Since the publication of the CII clause on 16 November, BIMCO has held talks and met with members and stakeholders to seek feedback.

“We have received constructive comments, both positive and negative, from many of our members,” says David Loosley, BIMCO’s Secretary General & CEO. “This insight is invaluable for already published clauses and the development of future clauses. We will continue to seek solutions to help our members operate commercially in a complex regulatory environment.”

Following recent dialogue with members, BIMCO understands that many stakeholders are still struggling to interpret the complexities of the CII regulation. BIMCO is offering comprehensive training along with free webinars to explain how the clause works in practice and how to understand the CII regulation.

BIMCO says it will continue to monitor developments as the CII regulation enters into force
