PARIS, HAMBURG, CHANDIGARH, BUSAN: May 20, 2019. Zeaborn Ship Management, a partnership of E.R. Schiffahrt and Rickmers Shipmanagement, is using Verifavia Shipping and the Korean Register (KR) to prepare an Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) and certification for over 100 vessels.

The move is to comply with EU Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR) and the Hong Kong (HK) International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships.

ZeamarineThe HK Convention has already been implemented for EU-flagged vessels and vessels from third countries calling at an EU port or anchorage.

From December 31, 2018 the EU SRR prohibits or restricts the installation and use of hazardous materials on new EU-flagged ships, or those going for recycling, as well as making it mandatory to carry on board a certified IHM specifying the location and approximate quantities.

Verifavia has received approval from KR to act as a service supplier for IHM, meaning it can conduct IHM investigations for vessels and KR will verify and certify their results.

Thiemo Ullrich, senior vice president Projects & Performance for Zeaborn Ship Management commented: “We need partners that are knowledgeable, responsive, and reliable – and we trust that the combined Korean Register and Verifavia team can effectively support us as we strive to meet these regulatory requirements and deadlines.”

Korean Register Technical and Commercial director Michael Suhr added: “Under the new regulations, by end of 2020 every ship with an EU Flag or any ship entering EU waters must have on board an inventory of hazardous materials (IHM) verified by a recognised organisation like the Korean Register. In Verifavia we have found a partner that aligns with our way of working and we are delighted to work with them to support Zeaborn Ship Management in achieving compliance.”
