Briese Schiffahrt appoints Korean Register to deliver EU MRV services

Agreement covers assessment of monitoring plans and verification of carbon emission reports.





Updated on 14 Aug 2017 12:10 GMT

Classification society Korean Register (KR) has been appointed to provide European Union monitoring, reporting and verification (EU MRV) services to Germany's Briese Schiffahrt, a specialist in the management of general cargo, multipurpose and heavy lift vessels.

KR and Briese Schiffahrt signed the agreement on Monday, August 14, which covers verification services including assessment of monitoring plans and verification of carbon emission reports in compliance with ISO 14065 standard and regulation 757/2015.

KR was authorized by Germany's National Accreditation Body (DAkkS) to act as a verification body for EU MRV on March 2, 2017.

The EU MRV regulation entered into force on July 1, 2015, and requires ship owners and operators to annually monitor, report and verify CO2 emissions for vessels larger than 5,000 gross tonnes (gt) calling at any EU or EFTA port.

By August 31, 2017, ship owners must submit to their verifier the CO2 Monitoring Plan of each ship in their fleet. Then, from January 1, 2018, onwards, they will be required to monitor the emissions, fuel consumption and other parameters, which will have to be reported to the EU on an annual basis and verified.

The aggregated ship emission and efficiency data is to be published by the European Commission by June 30, 2019, and then every consecutive year thereafter.

Michael Suhr, Technical / Commercial Director KR said: "We are pleased that Briese Schiffahrt has chosen KR to be its partner for EU MRV verification. This appointment demonstrates KR's growing status in the German market and is a clear endorsement of our technical abilities. We remain committed to providing prompt, efficient technical and specialist services to all of our valued customers in Germany and look forward to supporting Briese Schiffahrt in this important work."
