Update: 12 Apr 2018
Feedback from INTERCARGO members has not identified ship recycling as a priority concern of bulk carriers. However, recent news channel reports requested a brief summary to and share with members some findings:
- The European Regulation No. 1257/2013 on Ship Recycling (the SRR) is expected to be mandatory on 30 Dec 2018;
- There were widely reported legal cases involving two companies “Seatrade” (2018) and “Zodia maritime” (2017).
It could become a urgent issue for some members if they are finalising their ship recycling plan.
