Since January 1st 2019 all operators of merchant vessels larger than 5,000GT are required to Monitor and Report their CO2 emissions yearly on a voyage basis– both under the European Union MRV Regulation 575/2015 and globally under the IMO Data Collection System (DCS). These regulations are similar but differ substantially in reporting templates and definitions; in addition, EU-MRV requires independent Verification from an ISO14065 accredited certification body. These reporting schemes might be used for a future Carbon Taxation Scheme in 2023, which is looming over the industry.
We offer two distinct services for your EU-MRV and IMO-DCS compliance; and to prepare you for future carbon taxation:
Our sister company Control Union Certifications is ISO14065:2013 accredited to independently verify your EU-MRV reports.
