IHM maintenance performance review: what now and what next?

Date: Monday 20 September - Time: 09:00-09:45 BST



Having worked to achieve compliance with an Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM), shipowners must then shift focus to ensure their vessels maintain ongoing compliance. This process requires a continuous and proactive approach whether responsibility for compliance is managed in-house or delegated to a third party. This webinar will examine shipowners’ IHM requirements and present some of the tools available to assist.


Join us as we discuss

  • Material declarations and suppliers’ documents of conformity
  • IHM quality assurance
  • Flag, class and shipowner collaboration
  • Ship-specific parameters
  • Diversity of class interpretation
  • Annual IHM reporting

Compliant and profitable recycling of older vessels

Date: Thursday 23 September - Time: 09:00-09:45 BST



Shipping’s decarbonisation drive will see many older vessels being recycled sooner than they may have been otherwise. While the trend may appear to be a boon for recycling facilities, new environmental sustainability and worker safety measures are making ship recycling practices increasingly complex. Owners who fail to conduct appropriate due diligence on vessel disposal risk reputational damage, financial penalties or even prosecution.


Join us as we discuss

  • Regulatory developments and progress towards HKC
  • Responsible ship recycling standards
  • Ship recycling contracts and taxes
  • The flag of convenience loophole
  • Recycling different types of tonnage
  • Ship Recycling Industry - current state of play and challenges
