The EU-Ship Recycling Regulation was published in the Official Journal 6 of the EU on 10 December 2013 and takes effective on 30 December 2013. From the end of 2020 onwards, the Regulation requires that all EU-visiting or EU-flagged ships have a certified IHM onboard. The deadline is coming up with one year and a half away, and around 30,000 to 40,000 ships will be affected. Under such huge demand and scarce IHM-expert resources, it is highly recommended that ship owners and operators of ships trading to EU ports shall start planning to comply with EU SRR as soon as possible.
