- The draft Implementing Act on Emissions Templates, which includes the draft templates for the Monitoring Plan, the Emissions Report, and the Document of Compliance (DoC)
- The draft Implementing Act on Cargo Carried, which presents the parameters to be used to monitor the cargo carried on-board ship types other than passenger ships, containerships and ro-ro ships
