Grieg Green

Your Preferred HazMat Expert

An Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) is a certificate stating if a vessel carries hazardous materials onboard its construction and equipment, where it is, and the amount. Based on this certificate, the shipowner can ensure the safety of crew members through the vessels working life and assure safe handling of the materials at the point of recycling. 

Being a pioneer of green, safe and sustainable ship – and offshore recycling services Grieg Green has extensive knowledge and experience when it comes to IHM, proven by a notable track record.  

The EU Ship Recycling Regulations (EU SRR) turns IHM into a mandatory act: all vessels flying an EU member state flag, or any flagged vessel calling EU member state ports, must carry a valid IHM onboard. Moreover, the IHM must be maintained throughout the vessel’s lifetime. The regulation applies to all vessels above 500 GT.

As a consequence of the disruptions caused by the COVID-19, industry stakeholders estimate that several thousand ships are likely to be unable to comply with the IHM obligations and may not have the required certification by the deadline of 31 December 2020.

The European Commission has therefore issued a notice expressing a desire to establish some common guidelines in order to ensure a harmonized approach towards enforcement by the EU port States authorities during ship inspections as of 1 January 2021.
