ClassNK introduces support service for fuel consumption reporting

09 Feb 2018

ClassNK Consulting Service has launched a support service to help vessel owners set up a data collection plan in accordance with the upcoming fuel consumption reporting mandate introduced by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) effective 1 March, 2018.

According to the amendments to MARPOL Annex VI, shipping firms will need to implement a data collection system for fuel oil consumption of ships mandatory as of 1 March 2018.

However, data collecting and reporting for ships of 5,000 gross tonnes and more engaged in international voyages will be required beginning in 2019.

“According to this regulation, the gathering of data relating to fuel consumption amounts and a Data Collection System (DCP) outlining reporting procedures are required to be included in SEEMP as SEEMP Part 2,” explains ClassNK Consulting Service.

“As DCP must include a description of data collection methods and management procedures geared towards conditions of the ship, a DCP is required for every ship.

“Further, when a ship is being transferred to another owner, a DCP with the approved flag/class of the ship is necessary immediately upon delivery for ships being delivered on or after 1 March 2018, and by 31 December 2018 for ships delivered before March.”
