ClassNK receives EU MRV accreditation from UKAS

02 Mar 2017 12:53 GMT

Classification society gets green light from UK accreditation body.



Classification society ClassNK has received accreditation from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) as an EU monitoring, reporting, and verification (EU MRV) verifier, effective from 1st March 2017.

EU MRV is an EU regulation on the monitoring, reporting, and verification of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from vessels, which first entered into force on 1st July 2015. This regulation lays down rules for developing Monitoring Plans and for submitting the Emission Reports to verifiers accredited by a national accreditation body in the EU for ships above 5,000 gross tons which arrive at or depart from ports under the jurisdiction of an EU member state.

In accordance with the timeline of the regulation, shipping companies are required to submit a Monitoring Plan to an accredited verifier by 31 August 2017, and collect information and develop an Emission Report in accordance with the verified Monitoring Plan from 1st January 2018. After verification of the Emission Report and issuance of the Document of Compliance (DOC), shipping companies are required to retain the DOC on board the ships.

"Following this accreditation from leading accreditation body UKAS, ClassNK will be now able to assess Monitoring Plans, verify Emission Reports and issue DOCs in accordance with the EU MRV regulation," said Toshiro Koiwa, Director of ClassNK's Assurance Operations Division.

"With extensive experience in the GHG verification, we are committed to providing the same high-quality assurance services for the EU MRV assessment and verification activities," he added.
