The UK publishes draft UK MRV legislation following Brexit
In short, the 'UK MRV' would simply ensure a continuation of the EU MRV Regulation when UK leaves the EU. Since the EU MRV only applies to ships visiting EU ports, it would therefore cease to have effect when the UK leaves the EU, and voyages between UK ports and ports located outside of the EU would not not be subject to the EU MRV. The UK MRV regulation modifies the implementation of the EU MRV in the UK so that it applies to ships visiting UK ports.
Ships visiting both EU ports and UK ports would then be required to comply with both schemes. EU voyages and emissions would continue to be reported to the European Commission while UK voyages and emissions would have to be reported to the UK Secretary of State separately.
All other provisions of the EU MRV regulation will continue to apply.
