Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) - Get Ready!
Updated: Jun 22, 2019
We provide surveys for hazardous materials on vessels around the world, whether they are newly built, currently trading, or due to be recycled. The survey can take place while the vessel is at sea or in port and our surveying teams are able to meet and leave the vessel at most ports internationally. The IHM should be maintained to the end of life of ship, will be thoroughly inspected by authorities regularly to ensure its relevance and a full re-survey of the vessel carried out every five years.
After 2020 ships without IHM on-board and certification accordingly will not be allowed to enter or anchor at EU ports. Therefore, shipowners should act proactively and start planning for the new regulation. This to avoid rush and operational disruptions when all ships needs to have the IHM at once.
