ELI invites you to join us for an in-depth examination of the implications of the new rule. Our expert panel will explain the rule’s workings and answer questions such as: How can the regulated community comply? What are the civil and criminal enforcement mechanisms available to regulators? How can attorneys help their clients minimize liability for violations? How important are compliance programs to avoiding liability? What happens when EPA sends a “request for information” or the Coast Guard boards the vessel looking for evidence of compliance? What is the public’s role when it comes to finding and reporting violations? What happens if fuel is unavailable and how does the “Fuel Oil Non Availability” or FONAR work? The Environmental Law Institute will hold an in-depth examination of the implications of the new rule for sulfur emissions limits for vessels operating in U.S. waters.
