According to the European Regulation (EU) 2015/757 for Monitoring, Reporting and Verification of Carbon Dioxide emissions for Shipping (EU-MRV), every ship equal to or greater than 5000 GT which has a commercial operation and calls to a European port, is obliged to monitor and report to the EU commission and to the ship’ Flag Administration a series of relevant data on to its CO2 emissions.
 


The annual emissions report for the reporting period 2021 must be submitted to a verifier for verification. The verified EU-MRV emissions reports of the applicable ships are then uploaded to the THETIS-MRV system operated by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).
 


Similarly, ship-owners and operators should submit their fuel oil consumption data to a Recognized Organisation nominated by the flag (PHRS), as specified in MARPOL Annex VI, in accordance to the approved Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) Part II [IMO DCS (Data Collection System)] for verification. The verified IMO-DCS emission reports of the applicable ships are then uploaded to IMO GISIS system.
 


For both requirements, the reported data should be supplemented by the appropriate supporting documentation to enable the smooth/prompt verification work.


 
It is strongly recommended that both IMO DCS & EU MRV submissions to be made as soon as possible (till end of March 2022) to provide sufficient time for their review and corrections, if any.

We are pleased to inform you that further to Paris MoU's announcement regarding RO performance ranking, PHRS is classified on the High Performance Rank for the evaluation period of 2018-2020.

 

PHRS is retaining a position in High Performance Rank, once again, with an excess factor of -0.17 and a total of 591 inspections.

 

Classification societies with a low ratio of detentions by PSC Authorities, are placed on the list of ROs with high performance. This underlines the quality of their work and at the same time is one of the determinants allowing a vessel to classify as a Low Risk Ship. It is worth mentioning that during the past year, PHRS has established various new survey stations worldwide, thus ensuring quick and effective surveying attendance 24/7, in addition with the newly developed and established Ship Remote Survey Scheme (SRSS) in line with the established practice of other class societies.
Further and ongoing developments in our digital platform 'Archimedes Info' lead the way to a new, digitized era, supporting us to move forward to the future of new normal.

 

Our presence to the high performance list, comes as a result of the exceptional teamwork, experience and expertise of our technical staff and it is considered as an important achievement for our Organization, as it emphasizes and signifies our commitment to maintaining high quality services, and embodies our motto “Upholding quality, ensuring compliance” …
