Inventory of Hazardous
According to EU Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR) and Hong Kong International Convention (HKC) for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships
EU Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR)
EU Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR) will entry into force on 31st of December 2020 and will affect all ships above 500 GT with flag of a Member State and all ships with flag of a third country when calling a port or anchorage of a Member State.
The EU SRR is closely following the Hong Kong Convention's (HKC) structure, concepts and definitions. However, the EU SRR also sets out a number of additional requirements that go beyond those set in the HKC, including on inventories of hazardous materials.
EU SRR requires the development of an Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM), based on 15 hazardous materials and the maintenance of it throughout ship’s life cycle.
Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) is a document in which all potentially hazardous materials onboard a vessel are identified, located and quantified and follows HKC guidelines.
Our approved HAZMAT experts can assist you in the development of the Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) for your fleet.
The process for developing the Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) is as follows:
Collection of necessary documents-plans;
Assessment of collected information;
Preparation of visual/sampling check plan;
Onboard visual check and sampling check;
Laboratory analysis of samples;
Preparation of the Inventory and related documentation.
IHM Maintenance Manual
The IHM Maintenance Manual describes management procedures and responsibilities for the maintenance of the Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM), as per EU SRR and HKC, during ship’s operational life. Reflecting new installations containing any hazardous materials and relevant changes in the structure and equipment of the ship, taking into account the exemptions and transitional arrangements applicable to those materials under international law.
A web platform has been developed, which is used to support the IHM maintenance process and the management of all the relevant documents, information and data.
