EU-MRV (Reporting, and Verification)

  • Applicable to: Ships over 5,000 GT transporting passengers or cargo commercially to or from European ports.
  • Flag Relevance: Covers all ships irrespective of the flag they sail under.
  • Reporting Focus: Emphasis on data reflecting the actual cargo carried

IMO-DCS (Data Collection System)

  • Reporting Focus: Primarily uses the ship’s deadweight tonnage as an indirect measure of the actual cargo carried.
