SIEM – steps taken and implemented
Hazardous materials are handled onboard daily, exposing crew, ships and the environment to potential risk. If these materials are not properly recorded, ship owners can face significant liability.
An Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) helps ship owners maintain control of hazardous materials by detailing the types, quantities and locations of such materials onboard each vessel.
Most importantly, a thorough and accurate IHM is required for compliance with the EU Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR) and the Hong Kong Convention (HKC) for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships.
The SIEM fleet has identified hazardous materials and follows the IHM maintenance procedure for the ongoing control and verification of all materials that reach our ships.
