Abstract: Marine pollution from ships and, specifically, sulfur pollution from the fuel used by this transport, has been the focus of the current work. Sulfur pollution emitted by about the 60. 000 ships there are in the world is responsible for both environmental and health damages, causing harmful effects such as acid rain and even human deaths. This research aims to answer the reason of this dangerous situation. In this way, it has been analyzed the regulation adopted at the universal and European Union level to cope with this problem. At universal level, we have seen the UNCLOS, MARPOL, and Geneva Convention as a binding instruments, and then, the Stockholm and Rio Declarations, and the IMO guidelines as the soft low to deal with SOx pollution. At the EU level, we have focus mainly in the specific Directive related with the sulfur pollution, such as the Council Directive 1999/32/EC of 26 April 1999 relating to a reduction in the sulfur content of certain liquid fuels amended by Directive 2005/33/EC and Directive 2012/33/EU.
