Explanatory note for SCA Circular No. 6/1993 Article 2
explanatory note from suez canal authority, ismailia
on article two of circular 6-93 (canal tolls 1994)

i ) hull design and percentage of reduction

1) oil tankers without double bottom tanks complying with marpol
73/78, annex 1, regulation 13e shall qualify for:
4 pct reduction

2) oil tankers with double bottom tanks complying with marpol
73/78, annex 1, regulation 13e, shall qualify for:
2 pct reduction

note: tankers with only double bottom tanks are not subject
to any reduction, as double bottoms are exempted from
tolls unless used to carry cargo

3) oil tankers without double bottom tanks complying with marpol
73/78, annex 1, regulation 13f (4) shall qualify for:
4 pct reduction

4) double hull oil tankers without double bottom tanks complying
with marpol 73/78, annex 1, regulation 13f (3)
shall qualify for: 4 pct reduction

5) double hull oil tankers with double bottom tanks complying
with marpol 73/78, annex 1, regulation 13f (3)
shall qualify for: 2 pct reduction

ii) documents required
Applicants should submit the following documents before transiting the canal (pls approach SANMAR, Piraeus for correct
mailing address)
1) a copy of international oil pollution prevention (iopp) certificate of compliance and its supplement for the record of
construction and equipment as amended.
2) a copy of capacity plan
3) a copy of tank plan and piping system

NB: Tankers applying for reduction shall qualify either for 2 pct or for 4 pct discount according to hull design as mentioned
above. The 2 pct and 4 pct reductions will not be aggregated under any circumstances.

Suez Canal measurement
The measurement of tankers constructed according to marpol 73/78 without double bottoms includes 100 pct of their
segregated ballast tanks. The measurement of tankers fitted with double bottom tanks (as part of the double hull) includes
only abt. 50 pct to 65
pct of the total segregated ballast tanks, due to the exemption of the double bottom from the measurement. The effect is
that tolls related to carrying capacity for tankers having a double bottom are less than those for tankers with no double
bottom. This is the reason for applying a 4 pct reduction for sbt vessels without a double bottom, 2 pct for sbt vessels with a
double bottom as part of a double hull, and no reduction for sbt vessels with only
a double bottom.
