Issuance of Document of Compliance

Upon satisfactory verification of the emissions report, we will issue a Document of Compliance (DOC) for the ship concerned.  The Document of Compliance shall be valid for the period of 18 months after the end of the reporting period.
We will inform the European Commission and the authority of the flag State, of the issuance of Document of Compliance through THETIS-MRV.
By 30 June of the year following the end of a reporting period, ships arriving at, within or departing from a port under the jurisdiction of a Member State, and which have carried out voyages during that reporting period, shall carry on board a valid Document of Compliance.  For ships having failed to comply with the monitoring and reporting requirements for two or more consecutive reporting periods and where other enforcement measures have failed to ensure compliance, the competent authority of the Member State of the port of entry may issue an expulsion order which shall be notified to the Commission, EMSA, the other Member States and the flag State concerned.
