Clean Shipping Index (CSI) Verification

Verifavia is the first Independent Verifier to Provide Clean Shipping Index (CSI) Verification.

If your ships report to the Clean Shipping Index (CSI), we can independently verify your submission to the CSI against the requirements of the CSI requirements (Methodology and Reporting Guidelines and Verification Guidelines) and the ISO 14065 standard.

The verification of CSI data and information by an independent third-party is a mandatory requirement of the CSI to guarantee the quality of the  data reported.

About the Clean Shipping Index (CSI)

The Clean Shipping Index (Index) is a tool used by cargo owners to assess the environmental performance of shipping. The Index covers most significant environmental impacts and is calculated by the shipping company entering data for each of their ships into a web-based database. The database presents the score achieved for the ships in the shipping company fleet and gives a ranking to other vessels, but also to other shipping companies.

Clean Shipping Index has started collaborating with Environmental Ship Index (ESI). The next step is to have ESI scores presented in the CSI database and align the criteria for SOx & NOx.

CSI Verification - 6 steps to report verified data to the CSI

In practice, we conduct the CSI verification audit in three main phases. Audit conducted with a head office visit at company’s head office and on-board audit as per CSI requirements.

Data to be reported

Regulation on Swedish fairway dues

The Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) published an informative document on the differentiated fairway dues in Swedish waters, starting 1st of January 2018. This system rewards environmentally high performing vessels with lower fairway dues, according to their CSI class. Additional information on SMA’s website is available via this link.

Extended Verification deadline of CSI scores

Due to the short timespan between the approval of the Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) regulations on fairway dues and when they enter into force, the SMA has decided to give a grace period for the verifying of CSI scores. For more details please click here.

Next Steps

Verifavia is the first CSI accredited verifier to verify according to the new standard set by CSI to qualify shipowners for the tax rebate in Sweden. The company has already verified ships for Viking Line, Færgen and Tallink, and has a strong pipeline of shipping companies looking to have their ships CSI approved – with more than 30 ships to be verified in Q1 2018.
