Emissions verification company Verifavia has signed an agreement with ship managers Wallem Ship Management and Zeaborn Ship Management to conduct verification services for European Union (EU) Monitoring Reporting and Verification (MRV) and the International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) Data Collection System (DCS), as well as certification of associated IT systems.

For Hong Kong-based Wallem, Verifavia will provide verification services for EU MRV and IMO DCS across a number of its Liberia- and Panama-flagged vessels, as well as certifying independent IT system, Vertex SMMS.

Through its agreement with German firm Zeaborn Ship Management, Verifavia Shipping will provide EU MRV verification services as well as IMO DCS verification on most of its Liberia- and Panama-flagged vessels. It will also certify all of the IT systems used by Zeaborn Ship Management for these regulations.

Julien Dufour, CEO, Verifavia Shipping, who believes there is a common and unhelpful misconception that data must be submitted to the verifier in a certain format, commented: "A key drive for both these organisations has been the ability to work with a verifier that offers maximum flexibility. If the content is complete and compliant with the requirements of the regulations, it can be submitted in any format, from simple spreadsheets, to advanced mark-up language format, or more complex formats used in IT systems for monitoring vessel performance. We then take the burden of transforming the data into a workable format for the verification."

He added: "We are extremely proud to be working with both Wallem and Zeaborn Ship Management, and believe that this is testament not only to our expertise, but also our genuinely differentiated approach as an independent emissions verifier. Both companies will now benefit from obtaining a flexible, top-class verification service at a reasonable price from a single point of contact, streamlining the reporting and verification process."

With accreditation from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and France's national accreditation body, Cofrac, Verifavia boasts that it is able to assess or verify any ship in the world, regardless of country of ownership, flag state, or class.

The company's client roster is currently said to include around 180 shipping companies spanning 1,700 ships, and 30 ICT providers.
