To help shipowners prepare Part I of the Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) for existing ships, ABS has developed an IHM application. The IHM application is for existing customers and new clients.
As responsible stewards of the environment, shipowners and shipbuilders must be mindful of domestic, international and industry environmental requirements. Many environmental regulations impact maritime transportation and the marine offshore industry.
ABS is the shipping industry’s top resource for information on regulations and the specifics needed to ensure cost-effective regulatory compliance. The ABS Environmental Performance team identifies and supports the implementation of new technologies to ensure compliant operations for the marine and offshore industries.
Whether a company needs clarification of regulations for air quality, ballast water, bilge water, underwater radiated noise or solid waste, the ABS Environmental Performance team can assist vessels with optimum compliance options.
1 January 2016 is another important date for a regulatory change where the MARPOL Annex VI, Regulation 13 for Tier III emission standards for ships constructed on or after 1 January 2016 and operating within the existing IMO Emission Control Areas (ECAs) will be enforced.
