The Shipping MRV Regulation is a new European Regulation (EU) 2015/757 on the monitoring, reporting and verification of carbon dioxide emissions from maritime transport. It applies to shipping activities carried out from 1st January 2018.
From that date, companies must monitor and report the verified amount of carbon dioxide emitted by their large ships (above 5,000 gross tons) on voyages to, from and between ports in European Union countries. Companies must also provide certain other aggregated annual information, such as data to determine the ships’ energy efficiency. A valid document of compliance issued by an independent verifier has to be carried on board, relating to the shipping activities falling under the MRV Regulation in the previous year.
