    logo11 Vessel General Permit update

    In the July 2018 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Vessels General Permit update". The article summarizes the Vessel General Permit (VGP) program promulgated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce emissions into the water from vessels. It points out that the current program expires in December 2018 and that the EPA has yet to unveil a proposed replacement.
