The Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) requirements of the EU-Ship Recycling Regulation enters into effect on 30 December 2013. From the end of 2020 onwards, the EU-Ship Recycling Regulation requires that all EU-visiting or EU-flagged ships have a certified IHM onboard. With around 30,000 to 40,000 ships being affected, it is strongly recommended that ship owners and operators of ships trading to EU ports, start planning to comply with EU SRR well ahead due to the vast number of ships that will require compliance at the same time and IHM-expert resources will become scarce at the later time.
