IMO adopted “The Hong Kong International Convention for the safe of environmentally sound recycling of ships” in the year 2009 followed by the EU Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR) in 2013 that requires every ship calling at EU Port to carry an inventory of hazardous material (IHM) verified by the relevant administration or authority and specifying the location and approximate quantities of those materials. (Correct?)
Get Ready for Early Compliance
The entry into force of the EU SRR has made it mandatory for ships calling at EU ports to have verified IHM & Statement of Compliance (SoC) on board from the beginning of year 2021.
Developing IHM for existing ship is a huge task and requires a greater deal of time, effort and resources than for new ships. The process includes following steps,
