Lloyd’s Register (LR) has launched CO2 Verifier, an online verification service that provides a simple solution to comply with both the EU monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) regulation and the IMO Data Collection System (DCS).
CO2 Verifier is a secure cloud-based application designed by LR’s technical experts and co-created with ship managers, that provides one place for LR’s clients to manage their fleet compliance and submit data to regulators.
“Implementation of these regulations presents a significant compliance challenge for shipowners and operators – LR’s CO2 Verifier offers one simple way to comply with them both,” says Nick Brown, LR Marine & Offshore Director.
“It will save our clients time and effort, enabling them to focus on their day-to-day business.”
According to LR, the application features streamlined data submission with quick multiple uploads and a fast turnaround time following the submission of information.
It also has the ability to integrate with ship managers’ existing reporting system and enables users to contact an LR technical expert directly, in addition to online user support.
LR is an accredited third-party verifier for EU MRV and a Recognised Organisation (RO) for IMO DCS.
