.1 for which the building contract is placed on or after 1 January 2017;
or
.2 in the absence of a building contract, the keel of which is laid or which is at a similar stage of construction on or after 1 July 2017;
or
.3 the delivery of which is on or after 1 July 2019; or
.4 in cases of a major conversion of a new or existing ship, as defined in regulation 2.24, on or after 1 January 2017, and in which regulation 5.4.2 and regulation 5.4.3 of chapter 2 apply.
6 The Administration of a Party to the present Convention which allows application of paragraph 4, or suspends, withdraws or declines the application of that paragraph, to a ship entitled to fly its flag shall forthwith communicate to the Organization for circulation to the Parties to the present Protocol particulars thereof, for their information.
Regulation 20
Attained Energy Efficiency Design Index (Attained EEDI)
1 The attained EEDI shall be calculated for:
.1 each new ship;
.2 each new ship which has undergone a major conversion; and
.3 each new or existing ship which has undergone a major conversion, that is so extensive that the ship is regarded by the Administration as a newly constructed ship
which falls into one or more of the categories in regulations 2.25 to 2.35. The attained EEDI shall be specific to each ship and shall indicate the estimated performance of the ship in terms of energy efficiency, and be accompanied by the EEDI technical file that contains the information necessary for the calculation of the attained EEDI and that shows the process of calculation. The attained EEDI shall be verified, based on the EEDI technical file, either by the Administration or by any organization3 duly authorized by it.

Regulation 21
Required EEDI
1 For each:
.1 new ship;
.2 new ship which has undergone a major conversion; and
.3 new or existing ship which has undergone a major conversion that is so extensive that the ship is regarded by the Administration as a newly constructed ship
which falls into one of the categories defined in regulation 2.25 to 2.31 and to which this chapter is applicable, the attained EEDI shall be as follows:
Attained EEDI Required EEDI = (1-X/100) Reference line value
where X is the reduction factor specified in Table 1 for the required EEDI compared to the EEDI Reference line.
2 For each new and existing ship that has undergone a major conversion which is so extensive that the ship is regarded by the Administration as a newly constructed ship, the attained EEDI shall be calculated and meet the requirement of paragraph 21.1 with the reduction factor applicable corresponding to the ship type and size of the converted ship at the date of the contract of the conversion, or in the absence of a contract, the commencement date of the conversion.
