BACKGROUND OF REGULATION
As a first step towards cutting greenhouse gas emissions from maritime transport, the EU requires operators of ships exceeding 5,000 GT to monitor and report their carbon emissions and transport work on all voyages to, from and between E.U. ports.
All ships exceeding 5,000 GT regardless of their flag, port of registry or home port are concerned, except warships, naval auxiliaries, fish-catching or fish-processing ships, wooden ships of a primitive build, ships not propelled by mechanical means, and government ships used for non-commercial purposes.
In reference to M.R.V. Compliance, the most urgent part consists of Monitoring Plan with deadline on 31st August 2017.
At SMM with our long experience in Vessels’ Performance and having recognized the potential inconsistencies involved during emissions monitoring, we are your best alternative for preparing your Monitoring Plan.
More specifically the Reporting Scheme, kindly note that development of an M.R.V.-Specific Software for fully automatic generation of Emissions Reports in line with E.U. Commission requirements is underway based on the published templates.
Also, please consider that our software will ensure harmonization of the daily reported ship consumption figures with the upcoming reported emitted amounts in line with the M.R.V. Scheme, given that data input will be derived from the daily vessel’s standard reporting.
