Jul 14 2017


Emissions verification company for the transport sector (aviation and shipping), Verifavia has announced that it has over 1,000 ships and Monitoring Plans (MPs) under assessment for compliance with the EU MRV regulation.

This is claimed to be a significant milestone for the company, which became the first globally accredited verifier to receive dual accreditation under ISO 14065 standard and Regulation 757/2015 three months ago.

With accreditation from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and France’s national accreditation body, Cofrac, the company is able to assess or verify any ship, anywhere in the world, regardless of country of ownership, flag state, or class.
 
Verifavia Shipping CEO, Julien Dufour, said:“We feel proud and honoured that so many shipping companies have entrusted Verifavia to ensure a smooth EU MRV verification process. Verifavia remains committed to working collaboratively with shipowners and operators to achieve EU MRV compliance in an efficient, timely, and cost-efficient manner.”
 
Commenting on working with Verifavia, Samar Das, manager – fleet optimisation, technology & projects, Wallem Ship Management, said: “Since commencing our EU MRV compliance process with Verifavia, we have been very satisfied by the team’s professionalism, expertise, and knowledge of the regulation.

“It’s reassuring to work with a verifier that appreciates the challenges we face as shipping companies, and we are grateful to the Verifavia team for always ensuring that our compliance process is easy and straightforward," he said.
 
“As global fleet performance experts committed to providing our clients with the highest quality service, we see great synergies in the service provided by Verifavia. It has been a pleasure to work in close partnership with Verifavia to ensure that our EU MRV solution genuinely helps shipowners and operators to achieve compliance with the regulation accurately and efficiently,” said Michael O'Brien, StormGeo Shipping vice president of product & business development.
