33 CFR 154 Subpart P Deadline: August 15, 2016.

The EPA began targeting volatile emissions from marine vessel loading and degassing operations for vapor control in 1990. That same year, the U.S. Coast Guard published regulations pertaining to vapor control systems for marine loading operations and guidelines addressing safety requirements for marine vessel degassing operations. In 2013, these regulations were combined in 33 CFR 154 Subpart P. Units installed between July 1990 and August 2013 must be in compliance by August 15, 2016. #theendisnearcallJZ
