Press Release: Free EU MRV seminar at SMM to clarify regulation and support the route to compliance

Contact the author
Verifavia Shipping, the world’s leading emissions verification company for the transport sector, is delivering a free-to-attend seminar on the European Union’s Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (EU MRV) Regulation at SMM next week. Held in conjunction with industry experts from Zephyr Trading, CarbonSink, DFDS, NEDA Maritime Agency and ME Production, the seminar will provide owners and operators with the key deadlines, requirements and challenges of the EU MRV, helping to bridge the knowledge gap and support the route to compliance.
In July 2016, the European Commission published the draft Delegated and Implementing Acts pursuant to the EU MRV Regulation 757/2015, to provide additional clarity on the requirements of the legislation. The public consultation closed on 26th August and the final Acts will become law by the end of December 2016. This means that by 31st August 2017, ship owners and operators of vessels sailing in the EU and exceeding 5,000 GT are required to submit a Monitoring Plan (MP) detailing the procedures in place to monitor and report the fuel consumption, carbon emissions, and transport work on all voyages to, from and between European ports.
To increase awareness and understanding of this new Regulation, the seminar - held on Tuesday 6 September between 15:00-17:00 - will provide essential industry insight to support owners and operators in complying with the EU MRV. The agenda includes:
  • EU MRV regulation overview and update
  • Development of an EU MRV Monitoring Plan: content and challenges for shipowners and operators
  • EU MRV from the perspective of shipowners
  • An EU MRV case study
  • Direct emissions measurement systems: how to reduce emissions effectively
  • How to get MRV-Ready
  • Q&A

Short speeches will be delivered by industry experts, focusing on the practical implementation of the EU MRV and including hands-on experience from companies already engaged in the compliance process.
Julien Dufour, Verifavia Shipping, CEO, explained: 
“In less than one year’s time, owners and operators of vessels sailing in the EU and exceeding 5,000 GT must submit a Monitoring Plan (MP) describing the procedures in place to monitor and report their carbon emissions and transport work. With the Delegated and Implementing Acts almost finalised, requirements are now very clear. However, as with most new legislation, the challenge lies in effectively navigating its complexity and interpreting it to ensure compliance. We hope that this seminar will go some way to addressing frequently asked questions and equipping owners and operators with the information needed to work towards compliance.”
The seminar will take place at Room Osaka 1, SMM, Hamburg. SMM attendees can register for the seminar free of charge by emailing
