The American Bureau of Shipping states that the Department for Transport (DfT) has taken a decision to delay the requirement for ship operators to report emissions until the digital reporting system is fully operational (expected in 2025) but the legal requirement for ship operators to monitor vessel emissions remains in place.
The EU Regulation on Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Emissions from Maritime Transport has been transposed into UK law by SI 2018/1388, referred to as the UK MRV Regulations 2018.
Furthermore, the UK has issued MIN 669 on Reporting Emissions Data into the UK MRV Regime providing guidance on reporting requirements and MGN 662 providing templates for the UK MRV regime.
