Online verification of CO2 data from LR

Lloyd’s Register (LR) has launched an online verification service called CO2 Verifier to cover compliance with both the EU monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) regulation and the IMO Data Collection System (DCS).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}CO2 Verifier is a Cloud-based application designed by LR, with the assistance of ship managers, to provide a single system for managing fleet compliance and submission of data to the EU and IMO.

The application features streamlined data submission from multiple uploads and the ability to integrate with ship managers’ existing reporting systems. Users can contact an LR technical expert directly through the service if required, in addition to the online user support available.

“Implementation of these regulations presents a significant compliance challenge for shipowners and operators – LR’s CO2 Verifier offers one simple way to comply with them both. It will save our clients time and effort, enabling them to focus on their day-to-day business,” said Nick Brown, LR Marine & Offshore director.

The EU introduced the MRV regulation to reduce emissions from shipping, designed to gather data on CO2 emissions based on ships’ fuel consumption. In parallel, the IMO introduced a three-step approach, based on collecting and analysing fuel consumption data, before agreeing what further actions may be required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from ships. The first phase is now implemented through amendments to MARPOL Annex VI, and is known as the IMO DCS.

LR is an accredited third-party verifier for EU MRV and a Recognised Organisation (RO) for IMO DCS. When data is submitted to LR in line with these requirements, the class society carries out the necessary checks and verification procedures to issue the respective certificates required on board for Port State Control inspections.{/mprestriction}
