In view of an increased concern about various environmental issues, the focus on the use of non-hazardous materials in ship design, building and operation plus repair is also increasing. Two regulations are presently governing these issues:
Regulation (EU) No. 1257/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 November 2013 on Ship Recycling (EU SRR).
Inventory hazardous materials
Starting December 31 2020, the EU Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR) will be applicable for all vessels of 500 GT (new and existing) and above flying the flag of an EU/EEA member state, or third-party-flagged vessels calling at European ports. Those vessels will be required to carry an Inventory Hazardous Materials (IHM) on board which is certified.
