ABS has expanded its environmental compliance software range for shipowners and operators with the addition of the ABS Emissions Reporter, used to input and monitor IMO Data Collection System (DCS) and EU Monitoring Reporting and Verification (MRV) data.
Once registered, the application interface allows ship managers to upload DCS and MRV vessel details, reporting data and supporting documents through the user interface.
The software tracks the status of the verification process and, once the data has been verified by ABS engineering, allows the results to be exported and submitted to the appropriate organisation.
The Emissions Reporter is a complement to the ABS Environmental Monitor system launched in February and part of the ABS My Digital Fleet risk management platform, with users able to seamlessly integrate the two applications for data sharing.
“Shipowners are faced with a significant degree of new environmental regulation, making managing fleet compliance more challenging than ever before,” said Georgios Plevrakis, ABS Director, Global Sustainability.
“ABS is committed to supporting the industry meet its environmental challenges and this application is the latest evidence of that. It streamlines environmental compliance, making the complex process simple, seamless and straightforward to deliver.”
