Implementation of IMO DCS

Sep 10 2018

With only four months to go before data collection starts for the IMO DCS (Data Collection System) on 1st January 2019, companies should, as soon as possible, submit their SEEMP Part II for approval., DNV GL warned.

DNV GL approved MRV monitoring plans will be accepted as a basis for the SEEMP Part II for IMO DCS compliance, the class society claimed.

For ships with an EU MRV monitoring plan, the monitoring method described in the plan will be accepted as the data collection method required in the SEEMP Part II.

MRV data requirements are more comprehensive than for DCS. As such, the MRV plan content also fulfils the requirements for DCS, if the same method is applied also outside the EU.

To accept this combined solution, the plan shall be approved by DNV GL for those vessel classed by the company. The company stressed that it could not accept plans approved by other verifiers.
