IHM One Stop Solution
IMO & EU Ship Recycling Regulation
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) and separately the EU have issued guidelines for the process of recycling ships and their waste materials.
These guidelines will be imposed for all EU flagged ships as from December 2018 (new builds) and 2020 (existing vessels)!
Kiwa Oesterbaai’s HazMat experts are fully certified to conduct their surveys and will assist you with the IHM in accordance with these standards.
Maritime Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM)
The presence of HazMats and substances in industrial objects, ships or offshore platforms can pose a threat to human health and the environment. Kiwa Oesterbaai takes care of your needs and guarantees to deliver on the most complex of projects ensuring that vessels are completed on time and to client satisfaction. The Hong Kong Convention & EU Ship Recycling Regulation state that in the very near future the potential hazardous materials should be inventoried and catalogued throughout the entire lifecycle.
We work together with our clients to minimize downtime, either during port calls or when in dry-dock for repairs or maintenance. Our survey reports can be of added value during the entire life cycle of your assets:
- New builds
- In service
- During repair or refit works
- Recycling & decommissioning
