In the past years, regulatory entities have issued new guidelines for the development of Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) onboard of ships trading worldwide. Those regulations determine the substances of major concern as well as their respective threshold values in products used onboard, the lubricants being among others. Some of these substances are categorized as asbestos, ozone depleting substances, PCBs, PFOS, ODSs and organotin compounds, among others.
Please refer to following reference regulations:
- IMO MEPC 269(68): 2015 - Guidelines for the Development of the Inventory of Hazardous Materials,
- Regulation (EU) 1257/2013 of the European Parliament and the Council on ship recycling (EU SRR), EMSA - Guidance on the Inventory of Hazardous Materials, IHM Development and Maintenance in the context of the EU Ship Recycling Regulation,
- Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships, 2009 (HKC), (SR/CONF/45).
Based on the aforementioned resolutions coming into force on 1st of January 2021, all ships have to keep onboard an Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) covering the stipulated requirements and substances of interest. In this context, Lubmarine declares here that to the best of its knowledge, information and belief, all its delivered products conform to the concerned regulations, and do not contain any of the substances of concern.
