Software for EU ship recycling compliance

A new software solution has been developed by Germanischer Lloyd (GL) to streamline compliance with the newly adopted European Union regulation on ship recycling.

The IHM Green Server (IGS) is a web based application which aids in the preparation and the maintenance of a vessel's Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM). The tool supports ship owners with all of the IHM related aspects of both the EU regulation and the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships.

The new EU regulation will see a number of measures introduced to ensure that vessels are sustainably and responsibly recycled at the end of their lifecycle. The primary requirements of the regulation for ship owners, which is scheduled to enter into force at the end of the year, are the establishment of an IHM for all EU flagged ships and for all vessels which call at ports within the EU. The regulation is also intended to promote the ratification of the Hong Kong Convention as a global solution to the environmental impact of ship breaking.
