The author points out that for marine applications the only sets of emission regulations currently in force are the Lake Constance water craft regulations commonly known as the BSO regulations and the Swiss BAV regulations. From 1996 and 1997 respectively the BSO and BAV NOx limits will be 10 g/kWh from engines above 100 kW. For International waters, the International Maritime Organization proposes NOx limits ranging from 17 to 9.8 g/kWh, depending on rated engine speed, enforcement will probably be in 1997. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has put forward a controversial proposal to control marine engine emissions regardless of power rating. The article discusses technical and administrative reasons put forward by the Association of European Manufacturers of Internal Combustion Engines (Euromot) as to why larger marine engines should be excluded from EPA's rule making.
