IMO DCS (Data Collection System for Fuel Oil Consumption) Overview
Analyze status of emissions by collecting Fuel Consumption of Ships data from ships operation overseas, and utilize results to diagnose ship energy efficiency
Secure basic data to establish IMO ship emission reduction strategy(2023) and develop reduction policies
Summary of the system
For ships with total tonnage of over 500 tons operation overseas, establish plans(Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan Part II, hereafter referred to as "SEEMP Part II") to collect fuel oil usage and get approval from "principle institution" or an "agency designated by the principle institution", and collect fuel oil usage data from Jan 1, 2019.
Report yearly Fuel Consumption of Ships data collected to the "principle institution" or an "agency designated by the principle institution"
"Principle institute" or the "agency designated by the principle institution(RO)" that received the report conducts verification of the data reported, and electronically submits them to the IMO
IMO builds a database to manage·analyze the Fuel Consumption of Ships data submitted, and publishes a yearly analysis report and shares the ship emission status with the rest of the world
Ships with Gross Tonnage of over 5000 tons that navigate international waters
(Excluded: FPSOs, FSUs, Drilling Rig ships, ships without propulsion engine installed)
Fuel Consumption of Ships, operation distance, operation time, data collection period, ship identification data and specifications (Gross Tonnage, net tonnage, dead weight capacity tonnage, main engine·auxilliary engine power, etc.)
Basis of agreement
MARPOL Annex Ⅵ, Reg. 22A : Collection and Reporting of Ship Fuel Oil Consumption Data
Res.MEPC.282(70) : 2016 Guidelines for the development of a ship energy dfficiency management plan(SEEMP)
Res.MEPC.292(71) : 2017 Guidelines for administration verification of the ship fuel oil consumption data
Role of RO(Recognized Organization)
RO designated by the principle institution conducts the following regarding the operation of the IMO DCS system.
Approve SEEMP Part II and issue COC
Verify ship Fuel Consumption of Ships & issue SOC
Report ship Fuel Consumption of Ships to the IMO
