Dear all,
The EU Monitoring, Reporting and Verification scheme (MRV) is in force and will require to take a number of actions over the coming months.

We will keep you informed on what steps you need to take and at which time. Even though the first deadline is not before 30 August 2017 (monitoring plans submitted to verifier), we do recommend to initiate the following measures before the end of 2016:

1.    Check whether you are MRV-ready
Identify the gaps between your current monitoring and reporting systems and the requirements according to the EU MRV regulation. You can do this by using our MRV Readiness Check on our My DNV GL portal*. It provides a comprehensive checklist for all the data that shall be monitored on EU-related voyages and that shall be reported to the central database.
2.    Choose an electronic voyage reporting system
Do you use emails or Excel to perform your daily voyage reporting (e.g. departure, noon, arrival reports)? Then we recommend switching to a more efficient solution which can support you in creating an MRV-compliant emissions report and its verification.
With more than 750 vessels signed up to it, the most popular voyage reporting system in shipping today is Navigator Insight. There is a dedicated version of Navigator Insight for MRV, which is slimmed down to specifically cater for the requirements of MRV.

Feel free to contact us to discuss your related requirements at mrv@dnvgl.com. If you would like to have an official factual statement or need further support, please visit our MRV Ready page.

Upcoming MRV webinar and forum
Join one of three webinar sessions on 9 or 15 December.
An MRV Forum is taking place in Germany on 8 December.

Best regards,

DNV GL – Maritime
