Verifavia is able to assess or verify any ship, anywhere in the world

Emissions verification company Verifavia now has over 1,000 ships and Monitoring Plans (MPs) under assessment for compliance with the EU’s Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (EU MRV) regulation.

Verifavia CEO, Julien Dufour, said: “We feel proud and honoured that so many shipping companies have entrusted Verifavia to ensure a smooth EU MRV verification process. Verifavia remains committed to working collaboratively with ship owners and operators to achieve EU MRV compliance in an efficient, timely, and cost-efficient manner.”

The EU MRV Regulation applies to all ships above 5,000 GT, regardless of flag, on all voyages to, from and between EU ports (including ports located in the EU outermost regions).

As the first verifier to receive dual accreditation under ISO 14065 standard and Regulation 757/2015 three months ago, Verifavia is able to assess or verify any ship, anywhere in the world, regardless of country of ownership, flag state, or class.

With accreditation from UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) and France’s national accreditation body, Cofrac, Verifavia is working with around 60 shipping companies spanning 1,052 ships, and has certified EU MRV solutions and systems for 16 ICT providers.

Verifavia is also working with global ICT providers to certify their EU MRV ICT solutions, which seek to streamline the data collection and reporting process for shipping companies needing to comply with the EU MRV Regulation.
