Consultation Session: Reducing Emissions from the Shipping Industry

The Malta-EU
Steering & Action Committee (MEUSAC) together with the Ministry for
Sustainable Development, the Environment and Climate Change (MSDEC) and the Ministry
for Transport and Infrastructure (MTI), will be organising a consultation
session on a proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the
Council on the monitoring, reporting and verification of carbon dioxide (CO2)
emissions from maritime transport and amending Regulation (EU) no 525/2013 (COM
(2013) 480).

The
proposed Regulation will create an EU-wide legal framework for collecting and
publishing verified annual data on CO2 emissions from all large ships (over
5000 gross tons) that use EU ports, irrespective of where the ships are
registered. Ship owners will have to monitor and report the verified amount of
CO2 emitted by their large ships on voyages to, from and between EU ports.
Owners will also be required to provide certain other information, such as data
to determine the energy efficiency of ships. A document of compliance issued by
an independent authority will have to be carried on board ships and will be
subject to inspection by Member State authorities.

The session will be held on Tuesday, October 22, at Europe House, 254, St
Paul's Street, Valletta from 10:00 till 12:00.
