The EU SRR and the IHM
14 October 2020
The European Union (EU) having in mind the HKC requirements and in order to boost its ratification from the Member States, has adopted the Regulation (EU) 1257/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 November 2013 on ship recycling amending Regulation (EC) 1013/2006 and Directive 2009/16/EC (hereinafter referred to as “EU SRR”). The EU SRR is closely following the HKC’s structure, concepts and definitions. However, the Regulation also sets out a number of additional requirements that go beyond those set in the HKC.
An Inventory of Hazardous Materials (hereinafter referred to as “IHM”) must be taking into account the IMO Resolution MEPC.269(68).
Dromon Publication gathers the Regulation’s requirements in order to support and guide ShipOwners for the implementation and development of an IHM on board their vessels.
