France-based classification society Bureau Veritas has gained accreditation to carry out assessments and verifications for compliance with the European Union’s Maritime Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (EU MRV) regulation.

The regulation, part of the EU’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, requires operators to monitor and report on CO2 emissions based on ship fuel consumption. It applies to all merchant ships of 5,000 gross tons or above on journeys that call at an EU port.

The accreditation, received from United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS), combined with Bureau Veritas’ organization and network of EU Maritime MRV Verifiers “enables us to help clients meet the deadlines for compliance through timely approval of monitoring plans and future verification of monitoring reports,” Patrick Le Dily, Vice President, Legal Compliance & Regulatory Management, Bureau Veritas said.

Bureau Veritas will act as a UKAS accredited EU Maritime MRV Verifier in accordance with accreditation for ISO 14065:2013 certification scheme.

Verification activities cover review and approval of emissions monitoring plans, assessment of reports and issuing Documents of Compliance.
