ICS SOLIX™ provides services to develop the IMO DCS & EU MRV reporting.
According to modifications implied at MARPOL Annex VI by the 70th meeting of the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), ships 5000 GT and above are required to record and report data of their fuel consumption. The report is to be verified by the flag administration or RO and then to be submitted to the IMO Ship Fuel Oil Consumption Database. The first reporting period was for the 2019 calendar year.
The European Regulation 2015/757 (Shipping MRV Regulation) obliges shipping companies, owning vessels over 5,000 gross tonnage (GT) and operating within EU regardless of flag, to own a verified Monitoring Plan and annually submit an Emissions Report to accredited verifiers. Since June 2019, all vessels subject to this regulation must bear the Document of Compliance onboard.
