DNV GL and Norddeutsche Reederei H. Schuldt have signed a contract to carry out Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) certifications for the shipping company’s managed fleet of more than 50 vessels.
Certification fulfills requirements of the European Ship Recycling Regulation, which came into force in 2013 to address the environmental and health issues associated with ship recycling. Of approximately 60,000 ships around the world, about two-thirds are affected by the regulation.
