3. SHIP RECYCLING PLANS

The Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships, 2009 (the Ship Recycling Convention or the Hong Kong Convention) was adopted in May 2009. After the entry into force of the Convention, the development and maintenance of an Inventory of Hazardous Materials, which identifies the amount and location of hazardous materials onboard a ship, will be required for all ships over 500GT. Furthermore, ships shall only be recycled at ship recycling facilities authorized by the competent authority.

Prior to any recycling of a ship, a ship-specific SRP shall be developed by Aries Greenship Solutions for the Ship Recycling Facility:

  • Based on the information provided by the shipowner (e.g. Inventory of hazardous materials (IHM))
  • Including information on how the type and amount of materials will be managed
  • The SRP shall be approved by the Competent Authority of the recycling State

Once approved the SRP shall be made available to the ship for its final survey

4. THE INVENTORY OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

Every year, around 1,000 ships reach the end of their operating life. The European Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR) was introduced to ensure proper vessel dismantling methods are used to achieve safe disposal or recycling of all ship components, including hazardous materials.

An Inventory of Hazardous Material (IHM) is a document which provide ship-specific information on the actual hazardous materials present on board in order to protect health and safety of the crew, and to protect health and safety of workers at ship recycling facilities and avoid environmental pollution when the ship is going for recycling.

It is mandatory for all ships larger than 500 tonnes to keep an IHM.

The inventory replaces the Green Passport, adopted in the Hong Kong International Convention in 2009, and is a requirement by the EU Ship Recycling Regulation 2013.
