Verifavia Shipping is participating in the week long Posidonia - International Shipping Exhibition from 6-10 June at the Metropolitan Expo, Greece. Verifavia Shipping will conduct free masterclasses on EU MRV Regulation to help clarify this widely misunderstood regulation.

The free masterclasses at Posidonia will be delivered by experts from Verifavia Shipping and are available for all ship owners, operators and ICT solutions providers visiting our stand 1.148. The interactive sessions address four key areas of concern including; what is classed as a voyage, which emission sources are included or excluded, the differences between the four allowable monitoring methods, and the various key deadlines shipowners must adhere to. In addition, those attending will be encouraged to ask questions on all aspects of the regulation.
