Update Volume 2019/12 EU MRV Regulation (EU) 2015/757
The EU MRV Regulation requires that shipowners monitor, report and verify CO2 emissions from vessels exceeding 5000 GT calling at EU ports.
With effect of 30 June 2019, vessels entering ports in the European Economic Area (EEA) must have a MRV Document of Compliance (DoC) issued by THETIS-MRV and available for inspection by all member states. The DoC can be downloaded from the THETIS website upon submission of a class verified emissions report. Ship specific CO2 data for all vessels will now be made available for public access at https://mrv.emsa.europa.eu/#public/emission-report, which shall include the following information:
- ship’s name, IMO identification number and port of registry
- ship efficiency (EEDI or EIV, where applicable)
- annual CO2 emissions
- annual fuel consumption for voyages
- annual average fuel consumption and CO2 emissions per distance travelled
- annual average fuel consumption and CO2 emissions per distance travelled and cargo carried on voyages
- annual total time spent at sea in voyages
- method applied for monitoring
- date of issue and the expiry date of the DoC
- identity of the verifier that assessed the emissions report.
These requirements are an addition to the requirements under the Regulation that shipowners draw up and submit a monitoring plan and annual emissions report. As of 2019, the European Commission will publish the plans and reports on an annual basis.
