As part of the MARPOL Convention, in October 2016, the Maritime Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has adopted the Global Data Collection System.
The objective is to collect and analyze data on ships energy efficiency in order to make decision on what further measures, if any, are required.
The regulation will apply to ships above 5,000 GT on international voyages.
On 1st of March 2018, the Regulation 22A of the Annex VI of the MARPOL Convention on the Global Data Collection System will come into force.
On or before 31 December 2018, in the case of a ship falling under the scope of the Regulation, the SEEMP shall include a description of the methodology that will be used to collect the data required by regulation 22A of Annex VI of the MARPOL Convention and the processes that will be used to report the data to the ship's Administration.
The first reporting period will be the calendar year 2019. Companies shall collect and report, for each ship under the scope of the Regulation, the following data for each calendar year:
RINA is conducting pre-verification GAP-Analysis audits for shipping companies across the world.
RINA will act as RO in conducting the assessment of the SEEMP part II integration and the verification of the data to be reported starting from the calendar year 2019.
In addition to the usual verification activities, RINA provides training course for companies in order to find the best way to reach compliance.
RINA is one of the oldest ship classification society, a certification company operating internationally and RO for more than 110 all over the world.
Thanks to the experience already acquired as regards Climate Change and competent, expert personnel, RINA has at its disposal several schemes and services for independent verification of greenhouse gas monitoring, reduction and reporting systems, in accordance with European directives, international protocols and ISO standards, depending on whether implementation of the greenhouse gas reduction instruments is mandatory or voluntary.
