The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) Wednesday issued a circular on the IMO Data Collection System for fuel Oil Consumption (DCS) applicable to shipowners, managers, operators, Masters and Chief Engineers of Singapore-registered ships, and MPA’s Recognised Organisations.
The circular provides information and guidance on the IMO DCS in accordance to Regulation 22A of MARPOL Annex VI, and applies to all Singapore-registered ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above.
Exceptions to the case are ships solely engaged in international voyages within the port limits of Singapore; ships not propelled by mechanical means; and platforms including FPSOs, FSUs and drilling rigs.
It states that on or before 31 December 2018, the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) Part II – Ship Fuel Oil Consumption Data Collection Plan of all applicable ships shall include a description of the methodology that will be used to collect the data, and the processes that will be used for reporting of data to any of the eight Recognised Organisations (ROs) recognised by the MPA.
“All applicable Singapore-registered ships are required to collect the data specified in Appendix IX of MARPOL Annex VI, for calendar year 2019 (e.g. 01 January until 31 December), and each subsequent calendar year or portion thereof, as appropriate, according to the methodology in SEEMP Part II,” it says.
“The ship must aggregate the data collected or portion thereof, as appropriate, and submit them to any of our eight ROs within three months after the end of each calendar year (e.g. before 31 March 2020 for the calendar year 2019 data). The data collected must be submitted electronically using a standardised format approved by the RO.”
It adds: “Companies are strongly encouraged to submit their ships’ SEEMP Part II to the RO of their choice on or before 1 September 2018 to ensure smooth implementation of the IMO DCS and to avoid any backlog that may delay the ship’s collection and reporting of data.”
