Why Asbestos Difficult to Be Banned Within International Shipping ?

CTI Publish Research Results to IMO Meeting

 

Recently CTI has helped to submit to International Maritime Organization during Marine Environmental Protection Committee (MEPC) meeting, two technical research proposals regarding total prohibition of asbestos in maritime industry.

 

The research paper indicated that there are vast difference of asbestos threshold level and detection limit (the specific terms for lab testing capacity) worldwide. (as referred to  Table 1, also available on http://www.cti-ship.com/technique-exploration ) without  the unification of asbestos standard, the industry will ever and never achieve the total ban of asbestos globally. 

CTI has prepared the training course for surveyors and superintendent. If you are interested, please feel free to contact our colleague closest to you.
