Global emissions verification body Verifavia Shipping has certified Veson Nautical’s Veslink Voyage Reporting system for use in the verification of the European Union’s (EU) upcoming Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) regulation on vessels.
The approval was granted after Verifavia confirmed that the Veslink Voyage Reporting system complies with ISO standard 25051 on software engineering and 17065 on product certification.
Veslink Voyage Reporting has been designed to streamline data collection and distribution from vessels, operators, agents and counterparties.
Around 100 shipping organisations worldwide have already began using the system to manage a combined total of more than 5,000 vessels.
Verifavia Shipping CEO Julien Dufour said: “Veslink Voyage Reporting has been meticulously reviewed by our team of MRV experts against the requirements of the EU MRV Regulation (2015 / 757) in terms of process and functionality.
“We are confident in the system’s ability to simplify the process of data collection and distribution from vessels, and to support ship owners and operators in complying with the EU MRV Regulation in a streamlined manner.”
Vessels operators and owners will now be able to use the system to capture all the MRV data within standard ship forms as part of the normal workflow for arrival, departure and noon reporting.
The collected data can be instantly feed to the standardised reporting templates that can be submitted for MRV compliance.
Veslink users can also continuously monitor their fuel consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in real-time via integrated business intelligence dashboards.
The EU's new MRV legislation mandates that ship-owners operating vessels within the EU ports must supply reports regarding various specific parameters, including fuel consumption and other relevant voyage data.
