Verifavia Begins Pre-Verification GAP-Analysis Audit for Dynacom Tankers

Thursday / December 8, 2016

Verifavia has announced that it has commenced a ‘pre-verification GAP-Analysis’ audit for Greek-based Dynacom Tankers Management Ltd. (Dynacom). The tanker operator is taking proactive steps to meeting the requirements of the EU’s Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) Regulation (2015/757), which came into force on 1st July 2015.

The regulation is the industry’s first step towards cutting CO2  emissions from maritime transport in the European Union (EU). From August 2017, all ship owners and operators operating ships exceeding 5,000 GT within the EU will be required to submit a Monitoring Plan (MP) to verifiers, outlining their plans to monitor and report their carbon emissions, fuel consumption, and associated transport work. The data collected will be made publicly available for over 12,000 vessels visiting EU ports every year, and compliance is non-negotiable.

Working closely with Dynacom, Verifavia Shipping Hellas has started a GAP-Analysis audit of the tanker operator’s procedures, operations, and draft MP – using its M/T Gladiator oil tanker as the base vessel. The audit will involve a thorough assessment against the specification of the EU MRV Regulation and Delegated & Implementing Acts, to ensure that the vessel is on course to achieve MRV compliance. Once all gaps have been closed, Verifavia will review the final version of the MP and issue Dynacom with an MRV-Ready certificate.

Verifavia Shipping has now completed a series of pre-verification GAP-Analyses for several shipping companies, including Greek-based NEDA, as well as Greek-based information and communication technology (ICT) solutions providers SetelHellas, and DYNAMARINe.

The Shipping MRV regulation is new and unfamiliar, and with eight months to go until the first legal deadline, owners and operators must act now to ensure they have the right systems, capabilities, and understanding to effectively and efficiently comply with the regulation.
