Emissions verification company Verifavia has entered into an agreement with Wallem Ship Management in Hong Kong and Zeaborn Ship Management in Hamburg to conduct verification services for European Union (EU) Monitoring Reporting and Verification (MRV) and the International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) Data Collection System (DCS).
Through their agreement with Zeaborn Ship Management and Wallem, Verifavia will provide EU MRV verification services as well as IMO DCS verification on most of their Liberia and Panama flagged vessels.
“A key drive for both these organisations has been the ability to work with a verifier that offers maximum flexibility,” says Julien Dufour, CEO, Verifavia Shipping.
“If the content is complete and compliant with the requirements of the regulations, it can be submitted in any format, from simple spreadsheets, to advanced mark-up language format, or more complex formats used in IT systems for monitoring vessel performance. We then take the burden of transforming the data into a workable format for the verification.
“We are extremely proud to be working with both Wallem and Zeaborn Ship Management, and believe that this is testament not only to our expertise, but also our genuinely differentiated approach as an independent emissions verifier.
“Both companies will now benefit from obtaining a flexible, top-class verification service at a reasonable price from a single point of contact, streamlining the reporting and verification process.”
With accreditation from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and France's national accreditation body, Cofrac, Verifavia can assess or verify any ship in the world, regardless of country of ownership, flag State, or class.
The company's client roster currently includes circa 180 shipping companies spanning 1,700 ships, and 30 ICT providers.
