Emissions verification company Verifavia Shipping Hellas has started a pre-verification GAP-Analysis audit for Greek-based Dynacom Tankers Management Ltd. (Dynacom).

The audit of the tanker operator’s procedures, operations, and draft Monitoring Plan (MP), using its M/T Gladiator oil tanker as the base vessel, is being undertaken as part of the company’s steps to meet the requirements of the EU’s Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) Regulation, which came into force on July 1, 2015.

The audit will involve a thorough assessment against the specification of the EU MRV Regulation and Delegated & Implementing Acts, to ensure that the vessel is on course to achieve MRV compliance. Once all gaps have been closed, Verifavia will review the final version of the MP and issue Dynacom with an MRV-Ready certificate.

EU’s MRV Regulation is the industry’s first step towards cutting CO2 emissions from maritime transport in the European Union (EU).

From August 2017, all ship owners and operators operating ships exceeding 5,000 gross tons within the EU will be required to submit a Monitoring Plan (MP) to verifiers, outlining their plans to monitor and report their carbon emissions, fuel consumption, and associated transport work.

The data collected will be made publicly available for over 12,000 vessels visiting EU ports every year, and compliance is non-negotiable, according to Verifavia.
