ClassNK releases IMO DCS software

Classification society ClassNK has released a new software system for the reporting, monitoring and verification of shipping CO2 emissions in line with the IMO DCS regulations that will come into effect in 2019, an addition to its existing ClassNK MRV Portal.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Fuel consumption data reporting regulations under EU-MRV (European Union - Monitoring, Reporting, Verification) regulations have already taken effect for ships operating in the EU.

These requirements will be supplemented by IMO’s new DCS (Data Collection System) regulations, which will require all globally operating ships over 5,000GT to collect fuel consumption data and create an annual fuel consumption data report to submit to their flag administration or recognised organisation for verification.

The original ClassNK MRV Portal was launched in 2017 to facilitate compliance with EU MRV regulations, and this has now been updated to support IMO DCS. The software consists of onboard data transmission functions, a shore-based data management system, and functionality for submission of the required annual fuel consumption report.

The software is also capable of connecting with third-party packages or in-house logbook software, and allows users to submit necessary data reports to ClassNK through the system.

“We are very excited and proud to offer this major update to our ClassNK MRV Portal software solution,” said Yoshinori Kozeki, corporate officer, director of survey operations division, ClassNK.

“There is no doubt that the added convenience will prove beneficial to users, and the industry will now be able to smoothly respond to the upcoming IMO regulations.”

Clients already signed up for the ClassNK MRV Portal for EU-MRV can use the software for IMO DCS without any additional registration.{/mprestriction}
