IMO DCS – deadline 31 May 2020 - first Statement of Compliance shall be onboard

IMO DCS – deadline 31 May 2020 - first Statement of Compliance shall be onboard
Regulation 22A of MARPOL Annex VI requires ships to collect and report data on their fuel consumption, starting from 1 January 2019. For ships for which this regulation applies1 it is important that a valid SoC is readily available onboard for inspection together with the Confirmation of Compliance (CoC) for the SEEMP part II. The CoC (SEEMP part II) and the validity of the SoC (DCS) will be checked at each periodical statutory survey regardless of whether the DCS verifier having issued the SoC is the flag administration, class (RO), or any other verifier approved by the flag administration. As this is a new requirement, we expect that Port State Control (PSC) will focus on the SoC on DCS during any upcoming routine inspections.
