Emissions of maritime sector

Validation of monitoring plans and verification of emissions reports

As a new requirement from 30 April 2019 operators of ships arriving and/or departing from a port under the jurisdiction of a EU Member State have had to submit to the Commission and to the authorities of the flag states concerned an emissions report for the entire reporting period for each ship under their responsibility. Each report has to be verified as satisfactory by a verification company. A document of compliance issued by a verifier should be kept on board ships to demonstrate compliance with the obligations for monitoring, reporting and verification. Verifiers must inform the Commission and the ship’s flag state that the conditions for issuing a document of compliance have been fulfilled. Communication with these authorities is implemented using electronic templates available in Thetis MRV.
