Ship Recycling & Inventory of Hazardous Materials

Mar. 17 2021

Every year, around 1,000 large ships reach the end of their useful life and are sent for dismantling to recycle the steel and equipment. The majority of this recycling takes place in dangerous, polluting conditions.

The European Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR – Regulation EU N°1257/2013) entered into force on December 30, 2013 to reduce the negative impacts linked to the recycling of ships. It requires both shipowners and yards to take a proactive approach to safety and environmental protection in ship recycling, with a major focus on management of hazardous materials.

This guide explains the European Ship Recycling Regulation, its impact on you, and how BV Solutions M&O can support you in implementing it.
