Maritime London ship recycling webinar
In recent years, the maritime industry has come under greater scrutiny around its ship recycling obligations amid calls for more transparency about demolition activity.
While the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships is yet to meet all the ratification criteria to enter into force, from January 1, 2021, ships will be required to hold an Inventory of Hazardous Materials compliant with the EU Ship Recycling Regulation 1257/2013, and for EU Flagged ships this regional regulation is already impacting shipowners’ demolition decisions.
This Maritime London and Lloyd’s Register (LR) webinar, moderated by Jos Standerwick, Chief Executive of Maritime London, and supported by the British Embassy in Athens, will assess the economic case for sustainable ship recycling and the lifecycle considerations facing shipowners. This hour-long question and answer session will seek to address some of the following key questions:
- Does certification equate to compliance? And what does this mean for facilities in the leading shipbreaking countries and how are industry players navigating the evolving regulatory landscape?
- Shipowners are working to achieve an IHM. But how do they maintain an IHM, given the industry’s reliance on third party suppliers and why is this maintenance key?
- What role does transparency have in the drive for sustainability in ship recycling? – a look at the commercial imperatives and the role of stakeholders (charterers, banks and others) in supporting safer ship recycling.
