Palau International Ship Registry & VERIFAVIA partnership

Palau International Ship Registry (PISR) has signed an agreement with VERIFAVIA (UK) LTD and VERIFAVIA SARL to act as independent verifiers and to conduct IMO DCS verification services for the registry’s worldwide fleet.

Verifavia is a worldwide environmental verification, certification and auditing body for aviation and maritime transport and will work with PISR as independent verifiers to provide IMO Data Collection System (DCS) verification services to Palau-flagged vessels. The DCS reporting process uses the existing method of reporting of fuel oil consumption now commonly applied in the shipping industry. Verifavia will provide PISR vessels with a complete reviewed Data Collection Plan (DCP), which is to be included in the SEEMP Part II by 31 December 2018, allowing PISR to issue to its fleet a Confirmation of Compliance by 31st May 2020. This will be kept on board for the period of its validity enabling PISR vessel owners to start considering the methodology for collecting the fuel oil consumption data that is most appropriate for each ship.

Panos Kirnidis, CEO of Palau International Ship Registry, believes this is a partnership that will benefit the registry’s growing fleet.

“We have not been standing still since we were announced as the world’s fastest growing flag in 2017 and our aim is to blend technology with the skills and knowledge of our people to offer the highest standards of SMART IT services. This partnership with Verifavia is an extension of these services and vitally important as the latest IMO regulations will have a strong impact on global shipping. The IMO DCS regulations, which target the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from shipping, affect vessels and shipping areas. We now have an independent verifier to assist our fleet in navigating these regulations.

“The IMO DCS requirements on the monitoring, reporting and verification of the fuel oil consumption data, distance travelled and hours underway came into force on March 2018, while the deadline for completion of the Data Completion Plan assessment is 31 December 2018.

Based on the registered IMO DCS the reporting of the fuel consumption data and other transport works are recorded and the first reporting period is between 1 Jan - 31 Dec 2019.

Following this PISR will be able to issue a relevant Statement of Compliance by 31st May 2020, which should be kept on board for the period of its validity. We want to ensure our fleet complies with these regulations and using Verifavia’s services will offer PISR ship owners and managers one single point of contact for a smooth transition.”

Verifavia is fully accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and the French Accreditation Body (COFRAC) as a global EU Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) Verifier. Verifavia is also the First Independent Verifier to Provide IMO DCS Verification, CSI Verification and CCWG Verification and is the only such body with a double accreditation.
