Our technicians have achieved the “Approved HazMat Expert” certification during the course that was held on 16/12/2020 and which took place in accordance with the “Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Sound Recycling of Ships 2009” and to the “EU Ship Recycling Regulation (EU 1257/2013)”. The certification was issued by RINA.

What is IHM?

IHM stands for Inventory of Hazardous Materials:

  1. Inventory of hazardous materials present in structures and / or equipment from ships.
  2. A list of the waste generated by the activities carried out on board the ship.
  3. A list of stocks on board.

Target

Ensure that hazardous waste from ship disposal is subject to environmentally compatible management.

Field of application

Newly built vessels with GT> 500 t (excluding military vessels) on international voyages.

Effective from

The HONK KONG convention was enacted in 2009 but has NOT entered into force yet. Its entry into force is subject to a series of parameters that have not yet been achieved.

BUT
The European regulation (No. 1257/2013 specified in Article 32) requires that starting from 31/12/2020 each new construction has an inventory of hazardous materials on board.

THEREFORE
Only the “part 1” inventory will be mandatory for new buildings starting from 31/12/2020.

Please contact SailADV to plan an IHM survey on your vessel.
