Liberian Registry partners with Verifavia for emissions reporting verification

Emissions verification company Verifavia has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the Liberian Registry to conduct verification of processes for IMO DCS (data collection system) and EU MRV (monitoring, reporting and verification) on Liberian-flagged vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Liberian Registry includes more than 4,200 vessels aggregating approximately 150 million gross tonnes, representing 12 per cent of the world’s ocean going fleet.  

Shipowners of Liberian-flagged vessels that are required to comply with EU MRV will be able to conduct a single verification audit with Verifavia for both MRV and the IMO DCS based on the same primary data and procedures.

“We aim to provide our clients with a comprehensive service that ensures compliance with all maritime legislation, and we are pleased to offer Liberian-flagged vessels the opportunity to streamline the process of compliance with both of these key maritime environmental regulations in a cost effective and efficient manner,” said Scott Bergeron, CEO of the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR), the US-based manager of the Liberian Registry.

“We have the utmost confidence in Verifavia’s knowledge, expertise and capabilities, and we trust that it will uphold the highest levels of service that we strive to deliver.”

The Liberian Registry offers its shipowners the choice to use either an independent EU MRV verifier or an IACS classification society that has obtained EU MRV accreditation as a verifier. Both the independent EU MRV verifier and the IACS classification society would be required to enter into a cooperation agreement with the Liberian Registry before delivering combined EU MRV and IMO DCS verification services to Liberian-flagged vessels.

The Liberian Administration says it will issue a Marine Notice providing additional details and instructions for shipowners in due course.{/mprestriction}
