Dear Sir/Madam:

Subject: Training service regarding lately applicated marine hazardous materials control regulation and approach


I am contacting you to offer our new 2015 training service regarding hazardous materials inspection, testing and certification. As regulated by just adopted EU Ship Recycling Regulation (EU 1057/2013), all new EU ships need to be prepared an Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) before delivery for earliest end of 2015. All existing ships (no matter EU flag or foreigner flag) must be equipped with IHM as latest 2020.

The above new requirement will bring new challenges to marine industry between construction, owner, charter and enforcement parties. Our experience based on 200 ships inspection database is 85% of newbuilding can still be detected hazardous materials such as asbestos.

Accordingly new practice and competence needs to be established to help all the stakeholders to improve the compliance level and to avoid any discrepancies. Since 2009, we have worked with International Maritime Organization, flag states, classification societies and industries to provide best practice and training service. we are confident to offer you our world leading knowledge and competence transfer program.

We will feel grateful if you can take 2 minutes to go through the following training details and feedback to us.
