As you are already aware,the new EU MRV Regulation 757/2015 related to monitoring, reporting and verification of carbon dioxide CO2emissions from the ships is already  into force as of 1st July 2015 and  its implementation shall commence as of 31st August 2017.

This  new  regulation  applies  to   ALL   vessels  greater  than  5,000 GT  regardless of their flag, class , port of registry or home port  which are employed even in one or more commercial voyages  to/ from / between European Union ports including Norway and Iceland.

In order to comply with the new regulation and avoid penalties and possible Detentions of your ships when calling at European ports, you will need to carry-out following:

  1. Until   31st  August 2017  at the latest you must  prepare  for each one of your  ships  ,a ship’s specific  Monitoring Plan  (describing how the required data are collected on board and including company’s procedures).The Monitoring Plan must be submitted until 31st August 2017 to an  accredited verifier of your choice  for Verification and Approval.
  2. As from  1st January 2018   in accordance with the Monitoring Plan you will have to monitor on a per-voyage basis the amount of CO2 emitted by each of your vessels on voyages to/ from/ between EU ports.
  3. On  31st December 2018  you must prepare the annual CO2  Emissions Report   of each ship and submit it latest by  30th April 2019  to an accredited verifier  of your choice for verification and approval. This cycle will then be repeated for each subsequent year after 2018.


Therefore for each ship the critical dates to timely comply with the new regulation are as follows:

-Until    31st August 2017    you must prepare the  Monitoring Plan and submit   it   to a verifier for approval

-As from  1st January 2018  you must start the monitoring of the CO2 emissions on per-voyage   basis and on 31st December 2018 you must prepare the annual CO2 Emission report of 2018

-Until  30th April 2019  you must submit the annual Emission report 2018 to the verifier for approval
