EU MRV/IMO DCS COMPLIANCE
European commission has adopted the MRV (monitoring, reporting and verification of CO2 emissions) regulation. This regulation requires large ships (over 5000 gross tonnes) irrespective of where the ship or the company is registered calling at EU ports from 1 January 2018 to monitor their CO2 emissions and other relevant information emitted on journeys to, from and between EU ports, and also when in EU ports.
From 2019, by 30 April of each year, the companies have to submit electronically to the Commission satisfactorily verified emissions report for each ship. From 2019, by 30 June of each year, they have to ensure that, all ships having performed activities in the precedent reporting period and visiting EU ports, carry on board a document of compliance issued by an accredited MRV shipping verifier.
Therefore, VPS in connection to INNO+ Vessel Performance Decision Support project, is establishing a MRV module and implementing a report to be presented in the web application. This report is in compliance with the standard templates provided in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/757 and (EU) 2016/1927, so it can be used for submission to the commission’s automated system.
We also have a detailed description of how we will implement the emission report, which can be used as part of the documentation for the (MRV) Monitoring plan. Please contact us to hear more about how we can help you delivering the MRV report with a minimum effort from your side.
In addition to the MRV report, our system also produces output for IMO DCS. In many ways, the DCS system is similar to the EU MRV, however slightly simplified, since e.g. the Voyage part is excluded.
