It has been active in Greece since 1987, providing Third Party Inspection-Certification services, for all types of enterprises, in both private and public sector, in the fields of Technology, Quality, Security, Energy and Environment. Since 2011 TÜV HELLAS (TÜV NORD) as an accredited Certification/Verification Body offers services for the Verification of Greenhouse Emissions and the Validation of the respective Emissions Report. It has included in its services the EU Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) according to regulation 757/2015 for the Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Maritime Transport.
The regulation 757/2015 applies to ships, regardless of their flag, above 5.000 gross tonnage in respect of CO2 emissions released during their voyages from their last port of call to a port of call under the jurisdiction of a Member State and from a port of call under the jurisdiction of a Member State to their next port of call, as well as within ports of call under the jurisdiction of a Member State.
This Regulation does not apply to warships, naval auxiliaries, fish-catching or fish-processing ships, wooden ships of a primitive build, ships not propelled by mechanical means, or government ships used for non-commercial purposes. According to the regulation, by 31 August 2017 the company (i.e. the ship-owner or any other organization or person, responsible for the operation of the ship from the ship-owner) has to submit to the MRV Verifiers a Monitoring Plan for each of their ships indicating the method chosen to monitor and report CO2 emissions.
From 1 January 2018, companies shall, based on the Monitoring Plan assessed by the MRV Verifier, monitor CO2 emissions for each ship on a per-voyage and an annual basis.
From 2019, by 30 April of each year, companies have to submit to the Commission and to the authorities of the flag States concerned, an Emissions Report, verified as satisfactory by a MRV Verifier, concerning the CO2 emissions for the entire reporting period for each ship under their responsibility.
TÜV HELLAS (TÜV NORD) , offering services with prestige, reliability, visibility and added value, can be the inspection body to guarantee the MRV verification for the ships of your company.
