The International Chamber of Shipping’s second edition of its Transitional Measures provides the shipping industry with best practice guidance to minimise potential problems before ship recycling legislation enters into force. Backed by 35 shipowners’ associations and other key stakeholders this publication encourage shipowners not only to identify an acceptable recycling facility but also to obtain some guarantee that the facility is competent and able to handle vessels in a safe and environmentally sound manner.
As part of your company’s commitment to sustainability you need to follow best practice, attain independent assurance that agreed standards are upheld and regulatory requirements have been met, thereby avoiding potential liabilities and adverse publicity at the end of your ship’s life.
