Hazmat – Inventory of Hazardous Material
Inventory of Hazardous Material and Ship Recycling are topics which are getting more and more attention in the shipping industry because of recent entry into force (with effect from 31 December 2018) of EU Ship Recycling Regulation (1257/2013).
Current valid regulations on Ship Recycling are the Hong Kong Convention (HKC, not yet in force) and the EU Ship Recycling Regulation which bring requirements for both ships and ship recycling facilities.
Main subject of the above mentioned regulations is the onboard availability of the Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM), verified either by the Administration or a Recognised Organization authorized by it, accompanied by the relevant Certificate. The IHM shall be prepared taking into consideration the relevant IMO Guidelines (MEPC 269.(68) Guidelines).
M.E.I. has DNVGL approved HAZMAT experts.
