Templates for the UK monitoring, reporting and verification (UK MRV) regime


(www.MaritimeCyprus.com) The United Kingdom has published, the guidelines that provide the templates and technical rules for the submission of monitoring plans, emissions reports, and the Document of Compliance under the UK MRV Scheme.

Template of the monitoring plan:

Ship operators shall draw up the monitoring plan referred to in Article 6 of Regulation (EU) 2015/757 using a template corresponding to the model set out in Annex I.

Ship operators may split the monitoring plan into a company-specific part and a ship-specific part, provided that all elements set out in Annex I are covered. The information contained in the company-specific part, which may include Tables B.2, B.5, D, E and F.1 of Annex I, shall be applicable to each of the ships for which the company is to submit a monitoring plan pursuant to Article 6 of Regulation (EU) 2015/757.

Ship operators with an existing monitoring plan under the EU MRV regime should check with the verifier about the suitability of the existing monitoring plan for the UK MRV regime.

Template of the emissions report:

For the purposes of submitting the emissions report pursuant to Article 11(1) of Regulation (EU) 2015/757, companies shall use the electronic version of the template.

The electronic version of the template of the emissions report referred to in paragraph 1 shall contain the information set out in Annex II of MGN 662(M).

Electronic template of document of compliance:

For the purposes of issuing a document of compliance pursuant to Article 17(4) of Regulation (EU) 2015/757, the verifier shall provide relevant data using the electronic version of the template.

The electronic version of the template for the document of compliance shall contain the information set out in Annex III of MGN 662(M).

Bottom line:

Since the three reporting schemes run in parallel, Dromon can act as a single Verification Body for the EU MRV, UK MRV and IMO DCS schemes. Taking for granted that the three schemes have a number of similarities, it is advised to ask your Verifier to perform the  verification of the data using the same source of data in order to reduce the time needed as well as the workload and cost.
