CONSOLIDATED EUROPEAN REPORTING SYSTEM & SINGLE VESSEL DATABASE (CERS/SVD)
WELCOME TO CERS/SVD
The European Union (EU), through a variety of EU Directives, has placed a requirement on Member States to work with the European Commission and co-operate on data exchange by implementing a system to capture data on vessel movements, dangerous cargoes, vessel safety, security information and the disposal of waste within European waters.
The EU-wide system that will be used to satisfy the above requirements is called SafeSeaNet and the Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) system that will report to SafeSeaNet and the European Commission is CERS/SVD
Port State Control Reporting Obligations
The New Inspection Regime (NIR) of the Paris MoU on port State control will enter into force on 1 January 2011 for all 27 Member States. The NIR includes a targeting system assigning a risk profile to each ship visiting ports in the region. It will require certain information for any ship arriving and leaving ports or anchorages in the Paris MoU region to be made available to the new PSC information database.
