The IMO adopted the HONG KONG INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION FOR THE SAFE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND RECYCLING OF SHIPS in 2009. It is aimed at ensuring that ships, when being recycled after reaching the end of their operational lives, do not pose any unnecessary risk to human health and safety or to the environment. In addition, the Convention seeks to ensure the proper management of hazardous materials on board ships.
Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 November 2013 ‘on ship recycling and amending Regulation (EC) 1013/2006 and Directive 2009/16/EC’ was published in the Official Journal of the EU on 10 December 2013. It entered into force on 30 December 2013. Its articles will apply at various stages, as detailed in article 32 of the Regulation.
