Question:

 

Should My Vessel use a fuel with sulphur % less than 0.1% en route ECA towards a destination port which is outside ECA?

Answer:

Even if a vessel is not calling at any port in an ECA, the vessel must still comply with its requirements when passing through an ECA: for example a ship sailing from Brazil to a port in northern Norway, north of the ECA limit, would either need to be consuming low sulphur fuel while passing through any part of the North Sea ECA, or would have to take care to navigate outside of the outer limits of the ECA if consuming high sulphur fuel.
