1. Summary – compliance with the EU Ship Recycling Regulations (EU SRR)

Under EU SRR all existing ships of EU-flags, and ships of non-EU flags calling at an EU port or anchorage, must have an Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) verified by flag States or their recognized organizations (ROs), from 31 Dec 2020:

  • EU-flag ships shall carry on board a ship specific ‘Inventory Certificate’ issued by the flag administration or a RO authorised by it and supplemented by Part I of the IHM;
  • Non-EU flag ships shall carry on board a ship-specific ‘statement of compliance’ (SoC) issued by the flag authorities or their ROs (e.g. Class Societies) after verification of the IHM and supplemented by Part I of the IHM;
  • The IHM shall be properly maintained and updated throughout the operational life of the ship.
