Are you ready for the EU Ship Recycling Regulation?

The EU Ship Recycling Regulation will have a huge impact on the majority of the global fleet. It is based on the requirements of the, yet to be ratified, Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships.

The regulation will see requirements for certain hazardous materials prohibited or restricted on new ships. For existing ships, by the end of 2020 all ships visiting EU ports will have to produce an Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) which specifies the location and approximate quantities of a list of defined hazardous materials.

An IHM is a structured system to control hazardous materials onboard ships and achieve compliance with the EU Ship Recycling Regulation and Hong Kong Convention. The purpose of the IHM is to minimise risk, avoid potential liabilities, and enhance the safety of your ships’ crews by identifying and recording hazards and controlling risks onboard your ships.
