Green ship recycling & HazMats

Developments in national and international legislation bring about several challenges for all actors in the maritime industry, such as shipyards, ship owners, recycling facilities and class societies. What are your responsibilities and how to meet them? How do ship yards, for example, prove not to be responsible for added asbestos on board after the ship delivery? And in which situations are ship owners obliged to conduct an IHM and why? What are the possible options for waste management on a certain location? Possessing the right knowledge and acting appropriately and timely is essential to remain competitive and to avoid risks. van de poel | m.a.r.c. provides you with professional advices and guides you towards the best solution.

Trainings and publications about HazMats
