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.
OUR CONTRIBUTION - TOTAL SERVICES (INCLUDING VERIFICATION)
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.
Also, concerning Verification requirements, independent verification of Monitoring Plan can be provided by our accredited verifier.
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, verification of Emission Reports can be likewise performed by our accredited verifier on a voyage and annual basis.
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.
Also, please note that this stand alone software could be combined besides the electronic reporting templates for seamless and consistent input of necessary variables/parameters, with the voyage performance which, amongst others, allows very accurate and transparent evaluation of the daily reported ship consumption and speed figures.
