IMO DCS (Data Collection System) is part of IMO strategy to reduce shipping greenhouse gases emissions by tracking shipowners fuel consumption and emissions.
A process to follow step by step.
A calculation you should automatize.
Energy efficiency for greener operations.

about EU MRV and IMO DCS reporting.
The EU MRV process is dedicated to vessels of more than 5,000GT calling in European Union ports and requires verification by an Accredited independant Verifier.
The IMO DCS is a statutory requirement, with details defined by Flag Administration, covering all ships of more than 5,000GT worlwide, and requires verification by a recognized organization (RO).
MRV reports have to be made by voyage including at least one call in a European Union port. To be considered as a port call, the ship has to carry out commercial operations. Therefore, dry-docking or having a crew change are not considered as a port call.
The Member States will impose "effective, proportionate and dissuasive penalties" to the shipowner.
The Member State issuing the penalty will notify the European Commission, the European
Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA), other Member States and the ship Flag Administration.
If a ship fails to comply for two or more consecutive reporting periods and fails to respond to other enforcement measures then an expulsion order from the European Union ports can be issued.
Failure to comply with the DCS regulation during a Port State Control (PSC) and provide the associated documents can result in the ship detention by the State.
According to the appendix IX of the IMO Resolution MEPC.278(70), the following information shall be submitted into the IMO DCS portal for the reporting period :
According to the Regulation (EU) 2015/757 on the
monitoring, reporting and verification of carbon dioxide emissions from maritime, the following information shall be submitted into the EU MRV portal for the reporting period :
Bunker delivery notes (BDNs): This method determines the annual overall amount of fuel oil used based on BDNs. For verification, bunker delivery notes must be kept on board for three years after the fuel oil has been delivered.
Flow meters: This method determines the total amount of fuel oil consumption by measuring fuel oil flows on board by using flow meters. In case the equipment breaks down, manual tank readings or other methods must be performed.
Bunker fuel oil tank monitoring on board: Data measured by tank readings are conducted by appropriate methods such as automated collection systems, soundings and dip tapes. The tank readings should take place daily when the ship is at sea and each time the ship is bunkering or de-bunkering. In addition, the summary of monitoring data with the records of measured fuel oil consumption should be available on board.
IMO DCS data enables you to calculate your CII rating (Carbon Intensity Indicator).
CII is part of the SEEMP part III. The Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan is a compulsory document, listing operational measures establishing a mechanism to improve the energy efficiency, an d therefor improve the CII.
